Common tasks

Here is how to perform some common tasks as you start experimenting with Narakeet:

Set the voice-over language

Narakeet supports adding voice to video in many languages. Check out the available voices for an up-to-date list of supported languages and voices.

You can select the main voice for the whole document after uploading.

Add a voice stage direction between the paragraphs in your speaker notes to set the voice for the following text. The instruction should be in brackets, followed by a colon (:) and a number of seconds you want to wait. It’s important to add this into a separate paragraph, so there needs to be a blank line between the instruction and the rest of the text. For example:

First sentence, in the main voice.

(voice: Brian)

Brian will read this sentence.

Check out the Narration format reference for more information.

Switch back to default voice

Add a line with just three dashes (---) in a separate paragraph. This starts a new scene, resetting all voice settings to the defaults.


(voice: Brian)

Brian will read this sentence!

And this one!

---

Your main project voice will read this sentence

Control pronunciation and add pauses in the narration

Add a pause stage direction between the paragraphs. The instruction should be in brackets, followed by a colon (:) and a number of seconds you want to wait. It’s important to add this into a separate paragraph, so there needs to be a blank line between the instruction and the rest of the text. For example, to add a pause of 3 seconds between two sentences, add this to speaker notes:

First sentence, something very
interesting and amusing.

(pause: 3)

Second sentence, even more amusing.
