How To Change TikTok Text to Speech Language (8 Steps)

Tiktok continues to be one of the dominant and addictive social media platforms among Gen Z, which keeps updating itself with new features and effects. The platform has also added value to the digital realm by introducing the TikTok text to speech feature, but sometimes users forget how to change the language on it for their videos.

In this read, we’ll show you how to get this done with 8 step-by-step instructions. Let’s start!

What is TikTok’s text-to-speech feature? 

TikTok’s text-to-speech option automatically turns text into a voice message. This feature provides better comprehension for short videos. The user who is making the video opts for the option of adding text to their video. This gives their video content a much-needed understanding by the end user. 

The voice text is simply a Siri-sounding voice that speaks whatever is written over the video. The robotic feature discards the need for you to speak yourself and offers other benefits, such as:

  • Maintaining your anonymity.
  • Enhancing the interaction and making the video content more engaging.
  • Helps visually impaired people or the ones with poor eyesight to understand your content.

How to change TikTok text to speech-language?

Step 1: Update the Tiktok app

Firstly, make sure that the TikTok app has all the latest version updates, including the updated text-to-speech option. Go to the Play Store or App Store, search TikTok, and tap Update.

Step 2: Record the video

Draft a rough idea about what you want to create and share through the video. Also, ensure that the time and video duration fit between the text and speech entry. Once the video recording is complete, the next step is to add the text. For this click on the checkmark option that is in the lower right corner of the screen.

Step 3: Enter text

Once the video recording is done, the next step is to enter text. For this, tap on the icon of text that is placed on the bottom of the screen. After that, type the text you want to be read through voice and click on Done, which is placed in the upper right corner of the screen. A customized text box will appear on the screen that will enable the option of a text box over the video.

Step 4: Click on tap on the text, choose the option of text to speech 

To use the option of text to speech, you have to enter text into the video. When you tap on the Textbox, it further displays three options: Text-to-speech, Set duration, and Edit. Tap on the option of Text-to-speech and this AI-supported option will start reading the text aloud with voice. 

Step 5: Save the video internally 

In this phase, you need to finalize where you want to put the text-to-speech voice. Once the video is complete in every aspect, try to save it locally on the phone. Do not directly post the video; otherwise, everyone will see it. Ensure that the video is saved on the device. For this, activate the Save Video on Device option and then post it however you want.

Step 6: Download any video editor with voice modifier options

The next step is to download a video editor that is compatible with your smartphone. Also, ensure that the software has the added feature of a voice modifier. When you add video into the search keyword by typing Voice Changer or Voice Modifier a list of different options will appear. 

Step 7: Edit and resave the video

Once the selection of the video editor is complete, it’s time to launch the video and import it into the saved TikTok video. Now, import the video and edit or modify it as you like. You can edit, modify and add different effects to the video and resave it.

Step 8: Upload a new Tiktok video

Now when all the editing is complete, it is time to upload the new TikTok video as a singular video. Just open the TikTok app and upload the video directly, as it does not need any more edits. 


TikTok is a popular social media app with endless possibilities of innovative features. Gone are the days when the user had to speak himself while recording a video. TikTok’s new and updated feature of text-to-speech enables users to add text to the video, and Siri-like audio will speak the text.
