Text-To-Speech Feature

Are you not in an environment to record your own voice in your Reels video?

No worries!

Instagram has a solution for you! The new text to speech feature is ready to take the pressure off your shoulders & record perfect audio for you.

The latest text to speech feature on Instagram allows all the creators to use an artificial or computerized voice to read the content that appears on the video.

The best thing about this feature is that it allows you to add narration without even using your own voice. 

You can use this feature to get creative, add fun, and humor to grab more audience to your Reels.

Also, this feature is quite popular among TikTok creators as it is a widely used accessibility feature that allows blind people or people with low vision to hear the voice & understand the text written.
