There are 3 ways to do a voiceover: either hire a professional voiceover, use your own voice or get a software to do it for you. We will talk about using a software called ‘Speechelo’ to do the voicing here.
I want to be a Youtuber but I don’t have the news anchor or radio show voice like Larry King. That’s why I feel embarrassed and try to show captions and images on Youtube rather than using my own voice. That’s a lot of work and finally I gave up.
I was trying many ideas and methodology for how to become a Youtuber with a nice voice but without using my own voice. You know, I am not a native speaker, I am a foreigner with an accent. I think it may be hard for someone to understand my English. If you want to hear how I sound, you can listen to this Youtube video with my real voice.
Alternatives to Speechelo
While I was watching a video on Youtube, I came across a software called ‘Content Samurai’ now called ‘Vidnami’. It is a video creator software, what grabs my interest is this software includes an AI Voice generator from text. I was so fascinated and thinking it should greatly benefit me for not having to use my own voice to narrate the video.
I searched through several reviews on Youtube hoping to get a glimpse at the demonstration of the AI voice and wishing it doesn’t sound like a robot. After going through several reviews and demo, it sounds partially human if you adjust the tone of the voice correctly and can trick some people into believing that it is an actual person’s voice.
There are several voices for your choice, from male to female to children, American and British accent. However some of the option voice sounds don’t sound good but there are always decent ones, I can tell just by listening to it.
How Vidnami works is, you just input the script then the software will automatically pull out a series of slides, images, and video from their license-free library based on the keyword on your script. Either way you can always upload your own videos, images or your own custom voice.
It is a fascinating piece of software however it comes with a monthly price that I may not be able to afford it for now.

Let me get back on track with Speechelo Review, I saw this advertisement on facebook showing it can turn texts into a voice that sounds like a real human and with a one time payment. This grabs my attention quickly.
I went to the website and learn what it is all about and how it works.
Speechelo is differ from Vidnami in the way that it is a voice generator software with no video presentation.
Not only English, Speechelo includes several other non-English languages Ai voice generators as well. It is a great tool for introverts or non-native speakers who want to include content with a professional voice tone.
The voices definitely sound fascinating and I can’t distinguish between a human and an Ai voice, you can manually modify the voice with ‘breathing’,’emphasizing’ certain words and slow the reading speed to make it sound more like a human being.
The good thing is Speechelo is more cost effective for me to own it rather than paying for a monthly fee. It cost $67! However I am a founder member of Speechelo so I have the coupon for a discount. If you are interested you can click the link below to purchase Speechelo, coupon has already applied!
There are two price structures, a one time payment of $67 [Discount coupon here] for the software alone does not include the ‘Pro’ features. The upgraded ‘Pro’ version gives you a variety of voices from child to adult, from English to Japanese and from American to British accents.
The English AI voice is well done, but the Italian voice isn’t that good. If you didn’t have the Pro version, you can only have a script of 700 words maximum and have to download them one by one. For Pro, there is an unlimited number of texts you can generate per use.
If you wonder what is included in the upgraded Speechelo ‘Pro’ version, it offers over 30 voices, unlimited script for voice generation and other 23 non-English languages.
Speechelo software alone can generate many kinds of voices, it is easily integrated with third-party video creation software like Camtasia, Adobe Premier, Audacity, iMovie, etc.
Lets preview some of the basic features of Speechelo
Unlimited Voice Generation
Speechelo offers unlimited voice generation with 700 words restriction under the standard package but if you want unlimited text-to-voice generation you can go for the upgrade version in the upsell. Compared with the ‘Audioflow Pro’ version, it gives you a maximum of 3000 texts-to-voice generation which isn’t worth it.
Multiple Languages and Texts
Speechelo’s primary language is English, there are other 23 foreign languages you can use as an AI voice for your narration, it is interesting that French has multiple voice types.
No need to hire an expensive professional voiceover. It greatly benefits freelance Youtubers with a low budget. You can modify the voice in any way you want.
The only thing you need to do is input the texts, choose the voice type and accent, then it automatically converts to Ai voice for you within a few seconds.
Below is a video sample of multiple voices
What makes Speechelo so unique from other Ai Voice generators is it includes things like ‘Breath’, ‘Pitch leveling’ and ‘Emphasize’ to make the voice sound more like a real human being.
Supported languages: Arabic, Mandarin, Danish, Dutch, English, French,German, Icelandic, Italian, Japanese, Korean,Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Welsh
Convert Video into Captions
Now Speechelo includes the best feature for converting other videos into captions for repurposing. The software will automatically detect the language of the video from Youtube and translate into English and non-English as well.
Then Speechelo will regenerate the translated script into an AI Voice.
This feature is handy if you run a channel with multiple languages.
These are all the features of Speechelo that you need to know. I can say that it is definitely worth every penny of your money.
You can generate endless videos without using your own voice.

Now the software has only 30 languages. If you need more languages like 60+, you can check out ‘Voicely’ which is a recent text-to-speech auto generator software.
Language like French isn’t has a decent AI voice
Speechelo is a perfect AI voice generator software that almost sounds like a real person. The normal mode isn’t perfect but if you manually adjust it properly you can make it sound like a human being and most people cannot tell the difference.
If you are non-English speaker or think you don’t have a great voice and want to become a Youtuber producing English content, I highly suggest Speechelo as part of the voiceover tool to produce your own content at no cost.
Speechelo is a software that runs on the cloud and you don’t have to download and install it. You can access the tool anywhere with any computers and smartphone.
