AwesomeTTS for Anki

Easily add text-to-speech to your Anki cards

Storing MP3 Audio Files from the Note Editor

You can use AwesomeTTS to just add or update audio files one-by-one.

This method, along with the , will store the generated audio files with your Anki collection, inserting [sound] tags into your note fields. These tags are understood natively by all versions of Anki, and once generated can be played back even without AwesomeTTS. If you do not study outside of the desktop version of Anki, the on-the-fly method or the on-demand presets method might be easier.


  1. From the note editor, activate the input field to which you would like to add the audio [sound] tag.
  2. Click the speaker icon in the toolbar.
  3. Select your desired service and configure any options.
  4. Confirm that the input phrase is correct.
  5. Click “Preview” to confirm that your audio is as you would like it to sound.
  6. Click “Record” to insert the audio clip in the field.
