How to bypass the 10-minute limit for Clipchamp AI voices

Try shortening your text to stay under the 10-minute limit.

To see how you can bypass this limit, you can check out this tutorial at Seeking Tech.

First Method

For the first potential fix, you can try speeding up the AI voice to see if you can get the output to fit in under 10 minutes.

You can do so by using the Pace slider in the Advance Settings section. You will be able to increase the cadence by as much as two times the normal speed.

Second Method

If you don’t like how the speed-up version of the AI voice sounds, then the second method is to break your text into multiple parts. In order to do so, cut a portion of the text and, then save the remaining one to the timeline.

Next, you should create a new text-to-speech session. Paste the remaining text, and then save it to the same timeline as before. Afterwards, combine the two audio files in the timeline to bypass the 10-minute limit.

How to fix pronunciation errors when using Clipchamp AI voices

This Seeking Tech guide will show you how to fix pronunciation errors when using Clipchamp AI text-to-speech voices.

Phonetic Spellings

For the first potential fix, you can try intentionally misspelling the word to get the AI to output the sound you want. This can be especially helpful if you try to get it to pronounce an unusual name.

For example, you can spell “Xenogears” as “Zeeno-gears.”

If you want the AI to say a number the way you want, then you need to spell it out completely instead of just typing in a number.

Instead of “2024,” you should use “Twenty Twenty-Four.”

Changing The Text

You can also try changing the text input. To do so, you can replace the mispronounced word with a synonym.

You can also try keeping the word and, instead, rewrite the rest of the sentence to give it proper context. This may help the AI understand the proper pronunciations for heteronyms words such as content, close, lead, read, wound and more.

Using a Different Voice

Some AI voices in Clipchamp may be better at pronouncing certain words when compared to others. Therefore, you can try using a different voice type.

How to change Clipchamp AI voice speed and remove pauses

This Seeking Tech guide will explain how you can change the speed of the Clipchamp AI speech output, in addition to teaching you how you can remove any long awkward pauses.

Changing Speeds

The easiest way to change how fast the AI talks is by using the Pace slider. You can find it in the Advance settings section in the Text-to-Speech box.

You can use the slider to slow down the cadence of the speech output. You can also use it to make the AI talk faster.

Removing Pauses

If the speech output has a lot of awkward pauses, then you can try replacing a period with a comma. This is because a comma should result is a shorter pause when compared to using a period, which tells the AI to do a full stop.

If you find the comma pauses to be still too long, then you can manually trim the audio with the timeline. To do so, you need to do the following:

  1. Save the audio to the timeline.
  2. Use the trim tool to split the audio into different parts, isolating the pauses.
  3. Delete the long pauses.
  4. Combine the rest of the audio.

If you have a long sentence, then you can try rewriting it into multiple shorter sentences as well. The AI voices in Clipchamp can struggle with pacing if a sentence gets too long. So, you can try simplifying longer sentences.

5 reasons why Clipchamp is the best free alternative to ElevenLabs

If you are looking for the best free alternative to the text-to-speech AI voices of ElevenLabs, then this article will give you five reasons why you should check out the Clipchamp video editor.

5. Multiple Supported Languages

One of the best features of using the Clipchamp editor for text-to-speech is that it supports a wide array of languages. In addition to English, this program is also capable of outputting in Arabic, Chinese, France, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Spanish and many more.

Not to mention that there are multiple variants of the same language options available. Using the English language as an example, you will be able to pick between American, British, South African and Tanzania.

4. Multiple Voices/Accents

Another strength of Clipchamp is the number of voices and accents it offers.

As of the making of this video, there are over 20 multilingual voices that are capable of speaking multiple languages. There are also over 30 English-only voices to choose from.

With that many options, you should be able to find several that fit what you are looking for.

3. Changing Pace

When it comes to text-to-speech, some A.I. voices can sometimes talk too fast, while they talk too slow in other instances. Thankfully, Clipchamp lets you control the cadence of the speech by using the Pace slider.

You will be able to slow down the voice by as much as half the normal speed. You will also be able to speed up the speech by as much as two times the normal speed.

2. Adding Emotion

Another neat feature of Clipchamp is the ability to add emotion. While not all voices have this feature, the ones that do can really give the speech output some extra nuance, especially if you are using text-to-speech to tell a story or state an opinion.

For instance, with the Tony voice, you will be able to make it so that the A.I. sound Angry, Cheerful, Excited, Friendly, Helpful, Sad, Shout, Terrified, Unfriendly or Whisper.

1. Unlimited Regeneration

The best part about Clipchamp is that it is completely free to use with no strings attached. With most other free text-to-speech AI, as well as paid ones like Elevenlabs, there is usually a limit or quota when it comes to voice generation.

With Clipchamp, there aren’t any limits. You can generate as much A.I. voice as you need. There is a maximum duration of 10 minutes per generation. However, you can easily circumvent this by splitting your scripts into parts and then combining them in the timeline.
