Using Overdub Stock Voices

With Overdub Stock Voices, you can easily create lifelike voiceover audio by simply typing text. Choose from between 7 different Overdub stock voices: Don, Emily, Carla, Ruth, Malcom, Ethan, Henry, and Nancy.

 

Assigning a stock voice to your speaker label

To use one of the available stock voices, click on your speaker label dropdown box and then select Edit speakers. Add a new label or locate an existing label, then click the dropdown under "Overdub Voice" section. Choose a stock voice (indicated by the play button on the right), then click Done when complete.

 Once you've selected your stock voice, make sure to select the label in your speaker label dropdown. Here you'll be able to choose from a few different voice styles depending upon your need. Click the play buttons next to the voice styles to hear a sample of each style.

Now either begin typing new placeholder text, or if you've already written placeholder text, it will begin generating automatically (this may take a few seconds to begin).
