To use OpenAI’s amazing Text-to-Speech (TTS) functionality, first install the openai Python library and obtain an API key from OpenAI.

Instantiate an OpenAI client with openai.OpenAI(api_key).

Call'tts_1', voice='alloy', input=your_text) to use the 'alloy' voice model.

This generates speech you can save as an MP3 file using response.stream_to_file('your_file.mp3').

First, install the OpenAI library and set up your OpenAI key.

pip install openai # Python 2 or 3
pip3 install openai # Python 3 
!pip install openai # Google Colab

Second, copy and paste the following code in your Pythons script or notebook, replacing the OpenAI API key with your own.

import openai

your_openai_key = 'sk-...'
your_text = 'Finxter helps you stay on the right side of change!'

client = openai.OpenAI(api_key=your_openai_key)

response =
  voice="alloy", # other voices: 'echo', 'fable', 'onyx', 'nova', 'shimmer'


You can now find the file 'speech.mp3' in the same folder where you ran your Python script. Easy as that!

Now check out the amazing voice that sounds like a genuine human being, doesn’t it? 👇

At the time of writing, you can use the following voices:

voices = ['alloy', 'echo', 'fable', 'onyx', 'nova', 'shimmer']

Here are the six different voices in that order:

👨 Alloy (male):

👨‍🦲 Echo (male):

🦄 Fable (female?):

👩 Onyx (female):

🧓 Nova (deep male):

💃 Shimmer (female):
