On this page, you can learn from the illustrated guides on how to use TikTok’s text-to-speech feature to change the text and captions of your videos into voice. An alternative method is also provided.
The text-to-speech feature on TikTok comes in handy whenever you need to narrate your videos but don’t feel like saying something by yourself. It converts on-screen text in the video to an automatically generated AI voice, such as the commonly heard Siri voice.
The text-to-speech feature makes your video not so dull in background vocals and is extremely helpful to visually impaired TikTok users, allowing them to understand the point of the video in an easier approach.
On this page, you can learn from the illustrated guide on how to do the text-to-speech feature on TikTok. There are two fastest ways provided, one is using TikTok’s inbuilt option, and another is using the free video editing app CapCut.
The text-to-speech feature is already built in the latest versions of TikTok, so it won’t be necessary to go for any online video editors or video editor software.
This method works best with a video that is ready to be uploaded, all that’s left is adding text and doing text to speech.

To get started, open the TikTok app on your Android phone or iPhone. From TikTok’s UI, tap on the Plus button from the mid-lower side.
Now you’re on the video uploading screen where you’ll be asked to record a video or upload an existing video from your mobile phone’s gallery.
When your video has been uploaded to TikTok, hit the Text button from the lower options, and a keyboard will pop up for you to input the wanted texts.
By hitting the text-to-speech icon (the man-speaking icon), you’ll enter the text-to-speech screen where various male & female voices are provided: Joey, Eddie, Chris, Jessie, etc. You can download and have a try on your own to pick a favored one.
If needed, when a text-to-speech is added, you can further customize it. Hit the text that has been applied with text-to-speech effect from the video preview window, and you can freely Change Voice, Set duration, and Edit once more.
When everything is satisfactory, hit the lower-right Next button to move on to the final video posting process.
In some cases, if your video isn’t quite ready to be uploaded to TikTok and there are some video editings needed to be done, then the CapCut app is a better option.
You may need to cover everything necessary including adding text to the video which serves as captions, changing the captions to voices, and maybe trying some new filters or transitions to make the video look even better.
The video editing app CapCut is the default video editor application for TikTok, it is powerful in editing your videos, and you can directly share your videos from CapCut to TikTok.
Step 1. To get started, search for, download, and install the CapCut app from Apple Store or Google Play (yet I believe that many TikTok users have already installed CapCut on their devices).
Step 2. Create a new CapCut project and import your video.
Step 3. Hit the Text button from the lower panel, and tap on Add text.
Step 4. Type in the desired text and hit the checkmark to the right to add it to the video.
Step 5. Select the added text clip in the timeline, and hit the Text to speech feature below. It works like that of TikTok, you’ll then need to select the speech voice and language.
To do TikTok text to speech on PC, without the TikTok app, one easier method is using the free online TikTok voice generator tool called TikTok TTS, which generates the funny TikTok lady voice (and more) in a web browser on your personal computer.
Yes, there’re a variety of applications and websites that helps generate male or female TikTok voice on PC and mobile, and one of them is an online tool called TikTok TTS.
Update your TikTok app to the latest version from Google Play or Apple Store, and then go to TikTok Settings > Find Accessibility > Tap Spoken Content > and Turn on the Speak Selection if it has not yet. Now check if your TikTok text-to-speech is shown.
The TikTok app only supports one track of text-to-speech by default, to do multiple text-to-speech on TikTok, you should download or record a text-to-speech video, re-upload it to TikTok from your mobile phone gallery, and do text-to-speech once more.
As you can see from the tutorials above, it’s not that hard, to do text-to-speech effects for some of your TikTok videos, video editing apps have made it much simpler than things used to be, but please bear in mind that overuse is never good.
