How to Do Voice Over in TikTok

Doing a voice over in TikTok video is a common content creation strategy across the platform. Voice overs can be added for almost any purpose–talking through a cooking video, giving step-by-step instructions on a DIY tutorial or adding further clarity. Voice overs can even replace the original audio of the video.

How to Record the Voiceover

Once you press the microphone tool, the recording screen shows up. You can either tap or long press the recording button and start doing your voice over. On this screen you also have the option to check or uncheck the option to keep the original sound. 

Once you start recording, you’ll realize that you can either add one voice over or add a voice over to different segments of the video by sliding the white bar at the bottom of the screen. You can even adjust the volume and pitch of your voice over. After you’ve completed your recording a play button will appear on the video. You can tap this to listen to your voice over. If you want to re-record, just tap the back button. Hit Save in the top right corner after you’ve finished. 

After saving the voice over recording you can add effects and make other edits to the video. Then click Next and go about how you would normally publish your TikTok video. Make sure to add a description and adjust your video settings.

How Voiceovers Can Benefit Your TikTok Videos

Doing a voice over for your TikTok videos is a great way to elevate them and make them appear more professional. Additionally, you don’t need to multitask by doing and speaking simultaneously. You can plan out your video actions and then add in the voice over after some thoughtful consideration. This is also a fantastic fix for when you realize the audio in your recording is barely audible. 

Tips on Adding Voiceovers

Once you’ve added your voice over, you can go ahead and add captions to your TikTok video so your video is accessible to everyone, including people with hearing impairments or people who choose to watch in silent mode, while sitting in a quiet library or train.
