Getting Started (5/7) - How To Add Narration & Dialogue

Make your video sound as good as it looks.

Enrich your videos with GoAnimate’s voice-over feature, a powerful tool for setting the tone of your video and communicating ideas or value propositions to your audience.

GoAnimate Features

GoAnimate has two ways to add voice-over: dialog or narration. Dialogue applies to characters only, and comes with automatic lip-sync whilst narration is voice-over without lip-sync.

There are a few ways to add voice-over to your video:

  • Mic recording
  • Upload your own recording (or select from previous uploads)
  • Professional voice-over with our partners (VoiceBunny)
  • Text-to-speech (TTS), recommended as a placeholder before adding a real human voice.

It’s easy to drag & drop sound files within GoAnimate, and you can import multiple types of formats, such as mp3, wav, or m4a formats (15MB limit per file).
