Voki - Create a Speaking Avatar

Voki is a free website that allows you to create a talking Avatar in as little as 4 steps without having to sign up for an account.

To start, click the Create tab at the top of the page.

From there, you can customize your character, including clothes, accessories, and change eye, hair, and lip color.

You can give it a voice by calling in your text, typing it, using the built in microphone or by attaching a file.  You will notice that there are over 25 language options and several different voice options.

You even have the option to change the background and choose the color of the media player.

Once you are finished, click Publish and you are ready to share your Voki.

Click here to view the actual Voki.

Classroom integration ideas:
  • Use to introduce a new lesson.
  • Have students create short book reports.
  • Students can enhance their speeches or have the Voki read the speech for them.
  • Use as a mastery check.
  • Enhance student language skills by taking advantage of the 25+ languages.
