Synthesize text using the Voxey WordPress Plugin

The Voxey Page to Speech WordPress Plugin was tested for compatibility with all popular editors. In this article, you will learn how to make an audio version of your article using the three most common editors as an example:

Before proceeding, make sure that the Page to Speech WordPress Plugin is configured, and the AWS keys are connected to the plugin.

The Voxey can only voice saved public posts. It does not work for drafts, private posts or posts from the trash.

WordPress Editor (Gutenberg)

STEP 1

Create new or open existing Post/Page. Save or publish the Post/Page. If this is a new post, then after saving, you may need to refresh the page. To do this, press F5 for Window and Linux, or ?+R for Mac

STEP 2

In the sidebar on the tab Document, you will see the Voxey section. Inside the section, you will see a Create audio button.

Create audio

The plugin only works with data that has been saved. This means that if you left something changed in the text and pressed the Create audio button, then the data not saved will not turn into speech.

IMPORTANT

If you click the Сreate audio button before the publication is saved, then you will lose all changes that have not been saved.

STEP 3

After a few seconds, the page will reload, and you will see the player. Press the Play button to make sure that the speech was created correctly.

If you changed something in the post, save the changes to the server, and then click Re-create audio. The old audio version will be deleted, and a new audio version of the post will be created instead.

You can also simply click on the triangle to create audio for the page without opening the page. For already created audio, clicking on the green triangle allows you to download a file and a speech.
