One of the ways your VisualTours attract home buyers better than simple slideshows or most videos is that you can include a voice narration on them. In fact, we give you two options:
- Use Our AutoVoice Narration Feature
- Record Your Own Voice Narration Per Scene
1. Automated Voice Narration
The AutoVoice Narration feature adds a synthesized narrative to accompany your VisualTours.
You can also edit the narrated text so that the synthesized voice speaks the words more accurately. While our iSpeech component is customized to narrate commonly used descriptive words for properties, it may still mispronounce a variety of words.
In this case, you can change the spelling of your text to allow the iSpeech voice to narrate using a more phonetically correct manner. You just click on Preview to hear the synthesized narrative before saving it. We don't save multiple versions of the revised text, so use the Preview feature before saving your text changes, as those changed words won't be visible should you wish to make future changes to the same text section.
2. Recording Your Own Voice
To record your own personal voice narration, you'll need an inexpensive microphone plugged into the sound card of your PC.
- Launch your VisualTour Studio software (Windows desktop users only).
- Open your chosen tour and click on the scene you wish to narrate.
- Click on the Record Voice icon on the left menu
The following action box will appear. Click the red record button when you're ready to narrate the scene. You'll want to practice with your microphone and sound card settings. So if you're not happy with the recording, just click the Delete button and start over. Once you're satisfied, click the Done button and your narration is saved to this tour. That voice file will accompany your tour when you upload it to your VisualTour.com account.
