Tips to Use STT/TTS Function

❶ Are the STT/TTS licenses the same as Win and Mac versions?

No. Like the Filmora license, the configuration is differentiated according to Win and Mac.

❷ Will the authorization be repeated after STT/TTS recharge multiple times?

Yes. Different from the extension of the expiration time after multiple purchases of Filmora, the unit of STT/TTS is the number of hours/characters, and multiple purchases automatically accumulate numerous hours/characters.

❸ How to do if I want more STT/TTS character packs?

You can contact customer service directly on the purchasing page.

❹ Will the STT/TTS character balance be deducted if upload/transcription fails?

No.

❺ Will the STT/TTS character balance be deducted if the file format is not supported?

No.

❻ Will the STT/TTS character balance be deducted if a task is removed during the upload/transcription process?

If the task fails, it will not be deducted; if it is successful, it will be deducted.
