Great resource for Training & Communication initiatives

We're using Synthesia to create explainer videos. It's just easier, faster, and more cost-effective to use Synthesia than to record an actual person doing the explanation.

Frequently asked questions

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you make a talking avatar?

  1. Make a Synthesia account or try our free demo video generator.
  2. Select an AI avatar and type in your video script
  3. Adjust and edit background image or visual elements, add music, photos and other features to make it more fun

Can I make a custom avatar?

If you want to make a digital human version of yourself, try our paid avatar feature. You will need to upload video footage of you speaking, which we will process on our end to make sure all parts of the head look natural, from the teeth, to the nose and eyes.

What is a talking avatar?

A talking avatar is a computer-generated character that can generate speech.

Unlike most computer-generated characters, which are limited to pre-recorded dialogue, a talking avatar can generate new speech in response to user input. This makes them ideal for use in applications such as customer service and virtual assistants.

In many cases, talking avatars are based on real people, who provide the voice and appearance for the character. This can make them more believable and engaging than completely computer-generated characters.

How do you make a text avatar?

Making an avatar from text using Synthesia STUDIO is as easy as writing an email.

Simply choose an avatar, type in text in any of the supported 60+ languages, and generate the video!

You can also create a custom avatar of yourself!
