How To Use Text-To-Speech On Discord App?

Text-To-Speech (TTS) is one of the greatest features of Discord which makes your dream come true by reading whatever you type in your channel. This feature allows the bot to read any of your messages. Even you can have a lot of fun using this feature and I don’t feel that there is any need to tell you how? Basically, Discord was developed keeping gamers in mind. But now it has become a famous platform for group chats. Even TTS is a feature which was developed for people who are visually impaired. But in Discord, you can use it for making your community chats more interesting. Now, How to use Text To Speech On Discord? In this article, I have mentioned some easy ways which will help you in using this Text-To-Speech feature of Discord App.

How To Enable Text-To-Speech?

It’s very easy to use this feature. You just have to type /tts before the sentence, the text will be automatically converted into speech. Let’s take an example:

If you want this sentence – ‘TechToogle – More Than A Blog” to be read in Text-To-Speech.

Then you just need to type like this – “/tts TechToogle – More Than A Blog”.

Remember: Here you don’t have to use the quotation marks (“”). Moreover, The TTS  feature on Discord basically uses the default settings. You’ll hear different TTS voices using different platforms. Internet browsers like – Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome may have different TTS reading bot than Mac or Windows.

As you can see in the image, there are three options available. Before selecting any of these options, you must read the functions of each of them.

  • For all channels: This is the best setting for those who are visually impaired. Using this setting, every message would be read using Text-To-Speech even if /tts command is absent. It will allow every channel across any server to read messages in TTS.
  • For current selected channel: This allows the channel which you have selected currently will able to utilize TTS.
  • Never: None of your channels will have messages read in TTS. If you have selected this option no matter how anyone tries, you won’t hear any tones.

Sometimes, what happens is you give /tts command. But the other user can’t hear your message because he/she has disabled TTS. Always keep this in mind.

As you can see in the above image there is an option – ‘Allow playback and usage of /tts command.‘ You need to enable it.

Note: In the Text & Images tab, The TTS option is completely separate from the TTS option in the Notifications tab. If you have enabled TTS Notifications using method one, all of your messages will be read using TTS regardless of other TTS settings.

And if you want to restrict your messages to be converted into speech. Then using Method 2, disable ‘Allow playback and usage of /tts command.’ If you will disable it, then even if you will type /tts before your sentences, the bot will be unable to utilize TTS.
