Frequently Asked Questions

Where are the files stored?

Your files are stored encrypted, on Amazon S3 in the US-East-1 region. Other users do not have any access to your files, even if you uploaded them without registering.

How much does it cost?

During the beta phase it is free, but the size of a project is limited to 50 MB to prevent abuse, with a maximum of 20 scenes per video. Registered users can create videos with up to 300 scenes, and upload files up to 250 MB size, with a total of 400 MB per project. We’ll gladly give you more capacity if needed. Contact us to ask for more.

Narakeet does not claim any copyright for the user-generated content. If you had the right to use the visuals and text used to create a video, then you fully own the rights to the video as well.

Our Terms of use only require that you give us the license to store and process your materials according to your instructions.

Controlling narration

What voices/languages does Narakeet support?

Check out the supported voices list.

I don’t like the automated voice, can I add my own?

Of course. You can add pre-recorded audio files to scenes. Check out the Audio Files format reference for more information.

I like the idea of automating voice, but can I add my own?

Narakeet integrates with several voice synthesis services, including Amazon Polly, which offers custom branded voices. You can create a custom brand voice with Amazon, and we can then integrate it into Narakeet with a custom plan. Contact us for more information about custom plan integrations.

How to add pauses, breaks or control pronunciation?

Check out the Narration format reference.

Working with PowerPoint slides

How to create a video from Powerpoint?

Check out the From PowerPoint to Video tutorial for a quick introduction, and the Format Reference for a full list of features.

What are the limitations?

At the moment, PowerPoint slides can either be static images or videos. Embedded videos (just part of the page) are not supported, neither are animations or transitions in PowerPoint.

Why does the text look differently in the video than in my PowerPoint?

You most likely did not embed fonts into the document before uploading to Narakeet, so the conversion service could not use the exact same font files as when you created the presentation. Save the file again with embedded fonts and upload to Narakeet. If the text still looks differently, please contact us so we can investigate. Narakeet is still in beta so small bugs are possible.

How to add narration to a Powerpoint document?

Put the text into speaker notes. Check out the Narration format reference for more information.

How to create a video script file?
