Voice Cloning

Voice cloning technology allows users to create a computer-generated voice that sounds like their own voice. This technology is particularly useful for those who need to generate voiceovers using their own voice but do not have the time or resources to record their voice for every project.

To use this feature, subscribe to the Premium plan and navigate to the voice cloning section.

Enter the voice name, and gender and record a consent script along with a sample script for about 2 mins.

Voice cloning is supported in ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ American English, ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท French, ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช German, ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ Hindi, ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น Italian, ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฑ Polish, ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ท Brazilian Portuguese, ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ Spanish, ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต Japanese, ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ณ Chinese, ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท Korean, ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉ Indonesia, ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ Dutch, ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ท Turkish, ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ญ Filipino, ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ช Swedish, ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฌ Bulgarian, ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ด Romanian, ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ช Arabic, ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฟ Czech, ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ท Greek, ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฎ Finnish, ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ท Croatian, ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พMalay, ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฐ Slovak, ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ฐ Danish, ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ Tamil, ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ Ukrainian languages.

Note:

  • Record the sample in a quiet environment without any background noise.

  • Record the sample in the tone you would like the voice to sound.

  • Try using a high-quality microphone.

  • After the consent recording, you can improvise the script to words you might regularly use in your voiceovers.

  • Check the โ€œMake publicโ€ if you would like to give permission to other users on Fliki to use your voice in their workflow.

  • The AI voice generated will not have voice editing options like rate, pitch, pauses, or emphasis.

  • The voice cloning technology is useful for generating American English voices, as the software has been trained on a large dataset of American English speakers.

  • Once submitted it would take up to 6hrs for your voice to get approved and start using.

  • Cloned voices consumed 2x the credits. ie; 1 min of audio will deduct 2 mins of credits.

Overall, the voice cloning feature is a powerful tool that can save users time and resources when it comes to generating high-quality voiceovers.

With just a few minutes of recording, users can create a AI-generated voice that sounds like their own voice, and use it for any project they need.

Idea to Video

The idea to video feature makes it easier to create a video script by just keying in a few keywords about the script and selecting the language, tone, and length of the video.

Fliki will create the entire video, including script, media, and background music.

Account and Subscription

Credits

Credits are charged whenever you generate audio or export a video.

Credits are updated based on your billing cycle i.e. one month after the date you sign up. The monthly quota resets every month and the credits cannot be carried over or accumulated to the next monthโ€™s quota.

If you find any discrepancy in the quota itโ€™s usually since every change of scene reconverts the entire paragraphs and all the words will be recounted in your quota, to avoid this we recommend keeping the scene/ paragraphs smaller in length.

How are credits calculated?

Credits charged per feature:
