Synthesia or D-ID – which one offers better voices?
Synthesia and D-ID both offer a large selection of languages for text-to-speech voiceovers, with Synthesia supporting 130+ languages and D-ID supporting 110+ languages.
Additionally, both platforms offer the ability for users to upload audio files with custom voiceovers, and clone their voices for a custom text-to-speech voice.
What sets Synthesia apart is the auto-captioning feature, which makes it easy for users to generate captions for audio or video content. D-ID does not currently offer this feature.
Making videos with D-ID
As opposed to Synthesia, D-ID does not offer a comprehensive video editing tool in the browser. D-ID's Creative Reality™ Studio allows you to generate avatars, scripts and voiceovers in your browser, but offers no option to create a full video from start to finish.
Making videos with Synthesia
Synthesia STUDIO, in comparison is a more robust online video editing tool, that includes a screen recorder, media, animations, transitions, aspect ratios and video analytics. Because of the number of functions and elements you can include in your video, the rendering time is slower than that of D-ID.
Here's a brief overview of Synthesia STUDIO:
Want to add multimedia?
Since D-ID doesn't offer a full in-browser video editor, there is also no option to add stock or own media. Synthesia, on the other hand, features stock images, videos, stickers, GIFs, music, as well as the option to upload your own media.
Do both platforms offer templates?
Since D-ID's Creative Reality™ Studio offers very limited video editing options, video templates are also not included.
In contrast, Synthesia offers over 65 professionally-designed and fully-customizable video templates.
D-ID's security & ethics
As of February 2023, D-ID offers automated content moderation and stricter manual moderation for enterprise user, although during testing videos with profanity in the script were not flagged.
With regards to the security of the platform itself, D-ID does not offer Single Sign-On (SSO) and does not seem to be SOC compliant. Both factors can stand in the way of big enterprises using the software.
