A few years ago, it was shocking when a computer-generated voice didn’t sound like an underwater answering machine. These days, social media like TikTok practically runs on synthesized voices.

Now you can generate your own lifelike voices for books, school and a ton of other functions. The TexTalky AI text-to-speech app is a lifelike speech generator with 128-plus languages. And you might be speechless to learn that you can get a lifetime subscription at the heavily discounted price of $37 (regularly $540).

An affordable text-to-voice app

Rated 5/5 stars by purchasers, TexTalky can convert any text into more than 740 different voices. Powered by Google, IBM, Microsoft and Amazon, TexTalky can transform your lecture notes into a podcast and your textbook into a audiobook you don’t have to look at to enjoy.

All of that variation in voices makes for a ton of customization, too. You have the base 745-plus voices along with 128-plus different languages and dialects. And all of that is available for commercial use.

With TexTalky, you can create voiceovers for videos without worrying about licensing or paying voice actors. Or add narration to school presentations without needing to hear what your voice sounds like coming from a speaker.

When you buy TexTalky, you get 1 million welcome characters and 50,000 more every month for life. That’s enough to create quite the trove of audio recordings in, as one reviewer put it, “languages that other rival companies don’t even dream of.”

TexTalky is great for school, work, and creating a presence online. Even if you’re sick and lose your voice, you can write a script and create an audio file to play. Plus, setting up TexTalky is as easy as using it. There’s no installation process because everything is cloud-based. Just upload your text, put in some earbuds, and listen to a computer speak like a neighbor.

Save on TexTalky

Read your textbooks with your eyes closed and listen to your emails while you cook dinner. For a limited time, you can get a TexTalky lifetime subscription on sale for $37 (regularly $540).

Prices subject to change.
