The Best Text To Speech Apps for Shopify
People rarely read all the text on a web page. Many shoppers simply scan a few lines of product descriptions and prefer to focus on photos and other visual elements.
The text-to-speech feature helps to solve this problem by reading product descriptions out loud to customers, freeing their eyes to shop product photos, product options, and reviews. While they shop visually, they hear your complete product narrative, with all the facts and story influencing the buying decision.
We have an article to guide you on how to convert text-to-speech to listen on your Shopify store. If you’re more technical, you may want to do this manually. If you consider yourself non-technical, there are Shopify apps that convert text-to-speech for you.
