Text to speech add-on/extension in Articulate Storyline 3 Needed

Apr 07, 2021

Dear e-learning Heroes,

My institution has purchased Articulate Storyline 3 instead of 360 due to financial and budgeting limitations. Currently, I am working on a project that needs the text to speech feature. I am looking for any kind of extensions or add-ons that can be added to Articulate Storyline 3 so that I can convert the text to speech throughout the slides explanation. 

Thank you in advance

Hi Abanoub,

I would glad to help. In storyline 3, I believe the feature "text to speech" is not available as it is exclusive to Storyline 360; but you may try to open a Storyline 360 with text to speech narration and it will work in Storyline 3. I think you can utilize the built in text to speech feature of Windows however this is kind of done manually since you still have to transcribe the text in Storyline 3 and upload an audio of the dictation there as well. 

You may want to check the compatibility of storyline 3 and 360 here: https://articulate.com/support/article/Compatibility-Between-Storyline-360-and-Storyline-3-Project-Files

and if just in case, you intend to try the Storyline 360 trial pack you may want to see how the to speech is done through this link: https://community.articulate.com/series/articulate-storyline-360/articles/storyline-360-user-guide-how-to-convert-text-to-speech
