Voiceover

Learn how to add voiceovers to your how-to videos.

Updated over a week ago

Guidde enables you to add audio after video capture instead of recording it simultaneously:

  1. Record a voiceover by narrating your video step by step with your own voice.

  2. Convert transcript into a voiceover with our Text-to-Voice feature.

  3. Upload MP3/WAV files to transcribe your voice recordings.


Guidde supports 40+ languages and over 200 natural-sounding voices, enabling you to select a voice that suits your needs based on gender and accent. Check the list of options available here: Supported languages.
