Estimating Learning Video Narrations With Voiceover Tool

Phoenix company Ninja Tropic eLearning created Voiceover Tool, a free video narration tool that not only estimates narration length but generates text-to-speech audio.

Phoenix, AZ, May 2020—The eLearning animation and video company, Ninja Tropic, announced on Friday, May 1, 2020, that it’s now offering a free tool to the eLearning industry: eLearning Mario: A Voiceover Tool.

eLearning narration has always been a sore spot for course creators. How do you know if your script is long enough to meet requirements? Or if your script is too long or too short?

Ninja Tropic created Voiceover Tool to help course creators connect the dots early in the production process.

Voiceover Tool Benefits

Some of the advantages Voiceover Tool includes are:

  • Helping course creators get more eLearning engagement by mastering audio tone and pacing
  • Focusing on the more important aspects of eLearning scripting
  • Giving free, downloadable text to speech audio that can serve as a placeholder as you build the video

This free tool helps eLearning course creators better plan their voice over and narrations. "We realized there was a big need for this kind of tool in the eLearning space," says company owner Erick Prospero, "So we made it available to everyone."

What Course Creators Can Do

Paste in an existing script. This allows you to estimate the time it will take for a voiceover artist to narrate the script.

Add an estimated word count for your script if you haven’t written it yet. This will give you an estimated video length based on the word count and narration speed.

Voiceover Tool also allows its users to download the text-to-speech version of the audio, which the system auto-generates. Choose from multiple voiceover options like "Matthew" or "Kendra" before downloading your audio file.

"It’s hard to write a script and then translate it into audio. Text to speech gives you better insight into how the narration will sound with your video," Prospero says.

Previously, course creators had to work and rework their scripts to fit certain length requirements. Now, users can rely on Voiceover Tool to write more realistic, effective scripts without the back and forth.
