Whether you are voicing over with your own voice or synthetic voices, there is a huge appeal to this type of video format. Chances are, you have already watched a video that used a voiceover, and it probably even used a synthetic voice!

On platforms like YouTube, voiceover videos are becoming pretty popular, and there are even very large channels that specifically use the voiceover format. Why would you want to use a voiceover format in a video?

Well, I have included three of the biggest reasons why below.

You Do Not Have to Show Your Face

The first and probably most glaring benefit of making voiceover videos is that you do not have to show your face when you are narrating. And obviously, you do not have to show your face when you are using text to voice converters to narrate a video.

There is a lot of fear with some people of showing their face on sites like YouTube, so the voiceover route may make sense to their situation. Understandably, there is a lot of fear involved with getting in front of a camera and talking.

By not having to worry about that fear of being recorded, you will probably be more relaxed and narrate better. Or you can ensure that you are great and use a script and use a text to voice converter to do all of the work for you.

It is also effective because you do not have to worry about your appearance or body language, and you can just focus on the voice and graphics.

Showing Unique Graphics

Voiceovers are also beneficial because you can just put your voice or a synthetic voice over an animated graphic to illustrate your points. For example, videos where there is a narrator and just a hand drawing the graphics are a great example.

A voiceover works perfectly with those types of videos and that is why there is a lot of success to be had in those niches.

Just Write the Script

A huge advantage of using a text to voice converter is that once you have the graphics of the down and the script of the video, then all that you have to do is use your converter. Instead of worrying about having to narrate the script, it can all be done for you.

If you are good at skills like copywriting, then this type of method could be right up your alley and lead to a lot of success. The reason why a lot of people are successful at making YouTube videos that have a synthetic voice is that they are superior at using their copywriting skills to make a script.

Now that you have read the reasons why voiceover videos are a great option; it is time for you to judge whether it would be a good option for you. I would say that it could be a good option if copywriting is up to your alley and you have access to a great text to voice converter!
