What is Text to Speech?

Text-to-Speech (TTS) is a type of assistive technology that reads digital text aloud, so the user can understand and enjoy the content they’re watching regardless of any visual impairments. In short, this process takes text and turns it into an audio file to add in video clips.

Promote accessibility with visual and auditory aids

Cover all grounds of assistive tech to support viewers who need visual or auditory support. Text to Speech provides visual learners with text to follow along with while also tending to auditory learners with audio tracks.

Explore a wide range of video editing tools

Record your own voice or screen on just one platform. With Kapwing, you can add narration or a voiceover to a screen recording and edit your video all in one place.

Best online video service ever. And a miracle for deaf people.
[Subtitler] is able to autogenerate subtitles for video in almost any language. I'm deaf (or almost deaf, to be correct) and thanks to Kapwing I'm now able understand and react on videos from my friends :)

By the far the most user friendly software to use.
As a housewife at home looking to start a Youtube channel for fun with absolutely zero editing experience, it was so easy for me to teach myself via their YouTube channel. It takes the tediousness out of editing and encourages creativity. As long as Kapwing is around, I will be using their software.

Love this site.
As a English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.

Excellent subtitling features
[It] works perfectly for me. Have been using Kapwing for a year or so, and their automatic subtitle tool gets better and better every week, it's rare that I have to correct a word. Keep up the good work!
