No actors - no costs

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 is as easy as writing an email.

Simply choose an avatar, type in text in any of the supported 130+ languages, and generate the video!

You can also create a custom avatar of yourself!
