The Queen of AI – Alicia Lyttle – demonstrates the most powerful AI tool in Descript

AI can generate words, phrases, sentences and whole episodes with your own voice

Why is this so powerful? Well, have you ever wished you could just change one word, phrase or sentence to polish off your episode? Maybe you made mispronounced a name or need to fix something you mentioned like a link, resource or website address? Now you can fix it in a couple clicks with your own voice! Descript will clone your voice and then you can use it to fix things or even create new episodes. Talk about saving a lot of time!

Learn about:

  • Uploading and Training Your Voice:
    To create a voice clone in Descript, you start by uploading your voice under AI Speakers on the Descript homepage. Create a new voice, name it, and authorize Descript’s AI voice cloning. It’s crucial to upload a lively and powerful voice, as that’s what will be cloned. After uploading, your voice undergoes training, which takes at least 24 hours. During this time, Descript’s AI system learns and clones your voice.
  • Creating Content with Cloned Voice:
    Once your voice is trained, you can use it to create various content types, such as podcasts or correcting mispronunciations in video recordings. In Descript, you can write a script for your voice clone. After writing the script, highlight the text, right-click, and choose “overdub.” This process seamlessly integrates your cloned voice into the content, allowing you to create engaging audio and video without physically speaking.
  • Simple Steps for Cloning Your Voice:
    The process of creating a voice clone in Descript involves straightforward steps:
  1. Upload your voice in the Descript Voices section.
  2. Create a new voice, name it, and follow the on-screen instructions.
  3. Submit training data and wait for your voice to upload and train.
  4. In your project, write the script you want your voice to say.
  5. Highlight the text, right-click, and select “overdub” to incorporate your voice clone into the content effortlessly.

Remember, this technology can be a powerful tool for content creators, allowing them to enhance their projects with lifelike voiceovers without needing to record every line manually. It’s a game-changer for efficiency and creativity in audio and video production!

[00:00:34] Okay, great. So now you will see this. This is an authorization that your voice will be cloned by Descript’s AI voice cloning. Remember that whatever voice you upload, that’s what they will clone. So you really have to make sure that you sound lively and powerful. All right, once we are done doing the voice cloning, your uploaded voice will now go under voice training.

[00:00:57] We now have to wait for at least 24 hours [00:01:00] for your voice to finish its training.

[00:01:05] Okay, so now that it’s done, we now have a voice that’s trained. We can now use it to create a podcast using our voice or correct a mispronounced word in a video recording. Here’s a reel that we’ve made using my Descript AI voice clone. Hi guys. So Lisa, would you believe me if I say that in this entire video, I never spoke even once.

To do that, go to voices, click create new voice, and then type the name of your voice, click create, follow the instructions on the right side of the screen. And when you’re done with that, submit training data, wait for your voice to upload.

[00:01:43] When it’s uploaded, go to your project, click the feather icon, and then select write. Type in the script that you want your voice to say,

[00:01:55] when done, highlight it, right click, and then choose overdub. Easy, [00:02:00] right?
