The other way of making an instructional video is by using the “Speech Synthesis” feature of Ezvid. Create instructional text slides & this time around we’re not using the screen capture feature so it’s not capturing in real time but we are making one video through instructional texts and translating it using text to speech system (TTS).

 

To learn how to use it, you can simply go through these steps and enjoy:

1. Click the “add text” icon. So instead of recording your audio to explain your how-to tutorial, you are now using text slides & speech synthesis to tell a story to your customers.

2. In your text slides, lay out all the steps and in a step by step fashion. For instance if you are making a video on “how to download a video from YouTube”, what will be on your first slide is to say “go to YouTube.com”. Make another slide for the second step and so forth and so on…So make text slides like this and in a sequential manner.
