  • The avatar will not be animated (move its lips) when you preview your script.

How to Change an Accent

If you want to change the accent, click on the voice selection bar. At the top of the selection, you will find the recommended voices and accents for each avatar. For more, scroll through the list or use the search bar.

How to Preview Selected Text

To save time, if you have a long script, you can preview only part of your text. To do this, select the part you want to preview, and click the Play button.

Troubleshooting Language Recognition

In rare cases, our system will have difficulties detecting the language you're typing in. For example, your script is in Spanish but French is detected instead.

To solve this issue, type in a few typical Spanish words in front of your script to help our system detect the language. Once the right language is detected, you can delete those words.
