How to get Microsoft Azure Text-to-Speech API key

The Talker requires using your own Text-to-Speech API key from Microsoft Azure to start working with all the plugin functionality.

Creating the API Key

If you are a beginner and have never worked Microsoft Azure before, you will need to create your account first.


Everything is ready to begin the process of getting the key. Visit the Azure services to Create a resource.

  • Resource group – select one of the available groups from the list. Add a new one by clicking on the Create new button under the current field or via the item Resource groups on your Azure Home page. Read more about resource groups in the documentation.
  • Region – Choose the region that is right for you or your customers. Not all resources are available in every region.
