AI Voice Overs, The Perfect Match For eLearning
“One of the most important areas we can develop as professionals is competence in accessing and sharing knowledge.” – Connie Malamed
And precisely so, the pandemic did accelerate the cycle of change, advancing the learning system as a whole. eLearning is not a new concept for the generation, but we are seeing the ripples of positive transformation toward high-quality content for all. This is a huge and much-needed change.
eLearning Voice Over
One particular challenge in this rapidly growing sector is creating high-quality eLearning voice overs for delivering educational content so that eLearning videos are as effective as possible.
With the possibility of accessing all types of information related to every sector, we are moving toward a future where at least the basic right to learning will be equal and open to all. The world has long been waiting for a change toward a modern take on continuous learning, convenience, effectiveness, low-cost education, and other factors required to accelerate the industry.
The ecosystem is not only seeing an upswing in terms of educational and professional courses but also tremendous growth in courses and information related to physical health, hygiene, wellness, mental health, hobbies, etc. On account of the rapid changes this industry is witnessing, and the acceptance rate going up from end users, eLearning is here to stay and will create opportunities for every professional to share their knowledge with the world and monetize on their original content.
But, with new opportunities come new challenges. An online course comes with its own set of new requirements and challenges, be it course redesigning, scripting, teaching techniques, assessing students, and so on; the content creator has a crucial role to play and needs to produce high-quality content. In terms of technical skillsets, most educators are new to content creation and thus the need for alternative platforms to help them out is more prominent than ever before.
A good eLearning voice over is a necessary ingredient for delivering content at its best. Voice overs are the tool to reach out and connect to the thoughts and emotions of viewers and listeners. Not only do voice overs provide narration for video or presentations, but they also help you keep the end user engaged and involved in the course.
One way of making voice overs is the traditional route of selecting a voice over artist, booking a studio, and recording it there; but this is time-consuming and expensive for an independent course creator. The other way would be to record your own voice via a normal phone/laptop setup, but then the voice quality generally turns out to be low on account of noises and low-quality recording equipment.
AI Voices For eLearning Narration
The easy answer to this continuous challenge is AI voice overs. What if I told you, as a course creator, you do not need to record voice for every video you create? What if you could use the same script that you already have drafted for your lectures/classes and convert that into voice over in minutes?
With advancements in Artificial Intelligence technology and natural language processing, AI voice overs are now super realistic. In fact, 80% of people cannot tell neural AI voices from human voices. This helps create studio-quality voice overs from just a script or even from an already recorded low-quality voice over. An AI voice is basically a synthetic voice that uses deep learning to turn text into human recognizable speech. AI voice over platforms can now be used to not only help creators make a voice over with little to no effort but also drastically increase the course content creation quality.
How To Add Voices To eLearning Videos And Presentations
With newer AI voice platforms, the feasibility of creating high-quality courses has gone up significantly for any educator or course creator. The process is simple, add the script to a Studio that provides AI voice overs; select from a range of voices available; edit and fine-tune the details required, and render. Your audio file is ready in minutes. You can either add them to your videos/presentation separately or use the same platform to create final output videos matched with the slides or videos.
Below are detailed instructions on how to add AI voices to videos and presentations:
Owing to the endless possibilities with AI voice synthesis advancements and the fast-paced growth of the eLearning sector, the playing field is now open for all, and the opportunity to create good quality content is immense.
These are not just pandemic-fueled trends, they are here to stay and will only keep growing in the coming years.
