One of my favorite addons!
The Azure voices are great!
Thank you!
on 1659713147
The excellent addon to easily add voices for words in your vocabulary.
on 1659550139
Great add-on so far. Love the ability to customize voices and get different accents based on regions. Excellent implementation of tts services like azure and amazon. Setup is easy and the voice to text is saved to my cards for access on any device.
on 1659541053
Been using hypertts to create audio clips of spanish words to ensure my pronunciation is accurate and it works marvelously. Being able to select a number of voices and the hot-key function allows me to easily add a random voice to keep my cards sounding fresh. 5 stars.
on 1659519001
I really loved the addon. It helps me immensely.
on 1659306965
The options for creating templates and then using clear voices makes adding and using sounds really easy. Better for study too with the voices I'm using for Vietnamese and Mandarin.
on 1659277401
HyperTTS has such clear voices. I am leaning Slovak and this add-on is sooo helpful!
on 1659206568
This product is super cool. I am so glad I have it.
on 1659064365
on 1658786733
Excellent service and program working perfectly.
on 1658591743
So far so good! Definitely have to play around to find the right voice; I’ve found the Azure voices for Chinese to be really good. I really like how this adds a single button clock to generate audio, and how you can set it to target a specific field to base the recording on. Also, I love how you can preset it to choose randomly from a list of voices, really changes up the recordings and is better for learning purposes.
on 1658500674
Very good addon, using this all the time
on 1658356392
on 1658340177
This is a must-have for any language learner, specially those who want to create production decks with native-like audio. The neural voices are pretty good and don't sound robotic at all.
Thanks to HyperTTS and the Export deck to audio (Anki 2.1) add-on, I was able to create a glossika-like deck from scratch.
Best $5 of my life. :)
on 1658327324
I like it, gives access to the best sound I was able to find for swedish, through Amazon.
on 1658195902
It's a great add-on, offers a large varity of accents in so many languages. Nevertheless, some good quality free ressouces are not included in this add-on, while AwsomeTTs has. For exemple Youdao dictionary, its free japanese voice is of pretty good quality.
on 1658081209
Very good. Thanks
on 1658075114
It is easy to use, and very useful for TTS available in all amazing neural voices that available in all Languages.
on 1657942275
After I downloaded the new version of anki and updated the addon, the naver papago started working again. It's working perfectly again!

The issue is now fixed, I would appreciate it if you changed your review. And reminder that there is a reward for people who report bugs, please contact me hypertts@airpost.net for details.
on 1657910646
Excellent. It's extreme fast and easy create a lot of cards on Anki with audio files.
on 1657828085
Very helpful for hearing what the word is supposed to sound like in my target language. I can shadow it and helps my pronunciation at the same time as helping my reading.
on 1657815134
I'm still learning how to use it, but the quality of sound files is great!
on 1657722503
The author was able to fix the issue and I can continue to use the sound from Naver Papago (free version). On top of that, they were really quick in fixing the issue and responded quickly to messages. I appreciate it a ton! Like I said in my original review, I love the awesomeTTS add-on and now the HyperTTS add-on. The HyperTTS add-on just feels like a more user-friendly add-on with all the things I loved about the awesomeTTS add-on :D

I originally had the awesome TTS and loved it. Worked perfectly until the last month with Papago Naver (free version). Decided to update to HyperTTS but ran into the same issue causing the audio to be unable to load.
Error I get is:
Encountered an error while Playing Sound Preview: Could not request audio for [십]: got status_code 403 from https://papago.naver.com/apis/tts/makeID:b'{"code":00002","message":"Login required.","displayMessage":"Login required."}' (voice: Korean, Female, kyuri, NaverPapago)

Please fixed this. I really love this add-on and use it frequently.

Like AwesomeTTS, but easier to use and more options.
on 1657496243
Very good and practical.
on 1657464539
I thought I knew computers, etc. but I struggled a bit at first with figuring out what to do. I guess knowledge from the early computer days is becoming more and more irrelevant. But I slowed down, read the instructions, and figured out how to get this up and running on my computer and in Anki. If you too have trouble...reach out, figure out how to get it working. It is not hard, the explanation is sufficient and as soon as you use it I think you will agree with me...Simply put, it is phenomenal. I am now focusing on German sentences that I create in Anki. No matter what I write, Amazon AWS (premium service) speaks it back perfectly. Probably the best addon Anki has
on 1657410322
Has been a huge help with my pronunciation for Brazilian Portuguese.
on 1657123636
Author, you didn't just create an app. You make the world a better place!) You develop human civilization!
This is the best app for Anki. Learning a foreign language goes to another level. Sounding cards occurs in seconds!
on 1656867171
on 1656837978
This extension is perfect. Very convenient to add the TTS to the cards, and the audio is really good, a lot of variety (I use Russian)
on 1656579032
This is a game changer. Really easy to use. Just spend a little time fine-tuning your presets and you're setup for good.
on 1656455568
I love HyperTTS – it makes adding audio pronunciations to my Mandarin flashcards effortless. Cannot recommend highly enough.
on 1656341579
Hyper TTS has changed my life completely. Unbelievably helpful. Game changer. Thank gods for the creator of this addon.
on 1656177211
Saves a lot of time while delivering great selection of voices!
on 1656170104
Great !!
on 1656080755
I was hesitant to try this new add-on HyperTTS after having gotten used to the UI of AwesomeTTS for years now, but after a few minutes of using it, its user interface is much cooler and using presets is much more intuitive compared to before
on 1655938675
Most useful addon. Azure - sara is my favorite, but I wish I could afford this service longterm :( Very useful for me.
on 1655924956
Fantastically useful and well-designed app for adding TTS to my language flashcards. Really easy to use, good documentation, and an amazing developer who's very responsive and helpful. Highly recommended.
on 1655855318
It’s great. I wish I did not have to pay. But I can see why you might need to pay.
on 1655832456
Awesome app~~ dev has created a really nice tutorial on how to use. Highly recommended for language learners!!
on 1655716329
Wonderful tool to create good decks with audio
on 1655420521
This is the most useful Add-on for anki that I've found by far. It makes it very easy to add audio to any flashcard. For me, it's super important not only to see the written text but also hear how that text should sound. Some of the voices are very realistic, almost human-like. You have to pay a bit for those voices but it seems well worth it to me. HyperTTS is very customizable. You can have it grab text from any field and output to any field, among many other options.
on 1655132415
Awesome addon! Feel much more real with MS Azure than good old google translate :D
11 out of 10 flashcards approve!
on 1655063970
A really awesome and useful add-on, I cannot imagine learning a language with Anki without it
on 1654962923
Really good add on but I would recommend to pay the premium with PayPal instead of creditcard.
on 1654921474
I love HyperTTS. The speech feature allows me to focus both my eyes and ears on what I am learning, boosting my listening comprehension as well as my reading comprehension. My only frustration, which has nothing to do with this routine, is the limited number of truly free voices available..
on 1654799663
A must-have tool for any Anki language learner.
on 1654792593
Amazing resource for language-learning!
on 1654745068
Pretty cool, sucks that its paid for some voices but makes sense. Helpful for language learning!
on 1654422309
This is a great tool! Having the audio makes a world of difference, especially with languages like Chinese. Thanks for the great work!
on 1653804497
Listening comprehension has been one of my greatest challenges as a language learner. My wife discovered this add-on that allows you to easily generate and add audio files to cards from multiple different sources. This has been revolutionary for my language learning. The add-on is simple to use and very flexible in allowing you to configure the audio files exactly as you want. This is a fantastic tool and absolutely essential for taking your language learning to a higher level.
on 1653649810
Perfect ! very useful for language learners...
on 1653398936
HyperTTS draws upon a huge catalog of text-to-speech voices with some neural voices like Microsoft Azure sounding eerily human-like. I use Microsoft Azure's Yunxi 云希 male voice for all my Chinese sentence cards and generating the audio is so easy. Cannot recommend HyperTTS enough, a critical and valuable time-saving resource that had me from taking hours in a year just using Baidu translate and ShareX to grab sentence audio to sentence audio in mere seconds. Invaluable tool.
Comment from author
Many thanks for your positive feedback. Myself a learner of Chinese, I know TTS is an invaluable tool for language learning.
on 1653381751
language learners need to get on this
on 1652626668
Great addon with a lot of utility. With templates you can do a lot of things.
What I also like very much how responsive the dev is. I've been in contact about questions and possibilities and it's been very helpful. Superb support!
on 1652610717
great addon!
on 1652493178
Why my anki doesn't work??
Comment from author
Hi, please get in touch with me hypertts@airpost.net so that we can solve your issue.
on 1652305455
The variety of languages and voices is unbeatable.
on 1652222298
Amazing, but ended my quota :(
on 1652111086
The app is super simple to use. The guides on the website are clear and concise, right to the point. The whole process is extremely fast. There seem to be very advanced options, but most decks will be fine just using the basic ones. The app is so simple, and way more refined than its predecessor. For my use case, just yesterday I added TTS to around 5k characters in a Chinese Anki Deck. The pronounciations are top-notch (although this is more on Microsoft part). I surely want to keep using the app as I continue adding more and more words to my decks.
on 1651963865
Extremely useful and easy to use.
on 1651532630
What a great plug-in and time saver. I use Microsoft Azure at 0.7 speed for Japanese, and it's a real pleasure to listen to.
on 1651437011
Work as advertised.
I find the audio quality of the free "google translate" not as good as when you use translate.google.com but ok.
The voice quality for the neural voices of Microsoft Azure (paid version) is quite impressive.
on 1651414494
So much work, options BUT STILL NO SUPPORT FOR OPUS, file format that not only saves space but makes sound a lot better. I think all idea is about high quality of audio? So why use only 20 years old mp3 when you can add much better opus as option (yes! as option, people who don't want can still use mp3)
Comment from author
Ogg Opus and Ogg Vorbis are now supported in version 0.60. Please update your review if it's working for you.
on 1651244931
How do I add audio for other fields ?, it's only working for the front field of the flashcards...
Comment from author
Hi, please get in touch with me hypertts@airpost.net so that we can solve your issue.
on 1651055166
Easy to use. Good support.
on 1650902145
I use both hypertts and awesome tts and I use hypertts if I want combinations of pronunciation, it helps me diversify two words that sounds almost the same.
on 1650901965
helped me learn certain pronunciations, totally useful if you're hearing words for the first time and retain them
on 1650734590
If you thought AwesomeTTS was good, 'Hyper' is on a whole new level. The voices really are astonishing. I have friends who can't do joined-up speech as well as some of these! Haven't tried Language Tools yet but I'm looking forward to it. Many thanks to whoever put AwesomeTTS & Hyper out there!
on 1650233897
Great Add-on.
on 1650205340
Excellent way to try out many TTS engines for free with absolutely no hassle.
on 1649622144
Really helpful tool in learning languages to practice pronunciation and listening.
Thanks a lot!
on 1649509098
Add-on is awesome. Thank you very much. And it might be even better! It would be very useful if there are two features:
1) An option for automatic generation based on some filed/profile changes. Maybe the name of an audio file should contain a hash of a field and a hash of chosen voices. So, if I changed the field or add/remove a voice from the profile, the sound would be (re)generated. The check may run before a card review, after filed change, or manually.
2) An option to choose the destination field and voices with a custom Python code. I have "Vocabulary Audio" and "Example Audio" fileds in my note type and four decks with different languages, so I have to have eight profiles, and I would like to have only one.

Really good for Spanish, the Azure voices are phenomenal. Many thanks Luc!
Best addition to Spanish language learning for me.
on 1649320275
Fantastic ! What a big help !!! And the voices are very good ! Anki+HyperTTS, a must for foreign language learners !
The support is very reactive and fantastic too !! . Thank's a lot Luc
Comment from author before post was edited
Thank you for your compliments!
on 1648824153
Awesome tool.
The Neural Voices are supreme (Azure Voice especially ).
The app is user friendly even If I'm no expert on Anki (and It could be more potential for me)
on 1648774908
Must have add-on, if you want to learn language effectively. Especially, with the Neural voice, you can synthesize natural, realistic voices to your card that are a great help to remember vocabulary and sentences.
on 1648749761
Facilita a criação de áudio com apenas um click.
this extension is very powerfull because with this is possible add an audio with only one click.
on 1648700817
Chinese is quite natural. I like the voices of XIAOCHEN and YUNXI
on 1648556676
The interface is cleaner.
on 1648332253
Essential add-on for learning languages. Lots of functionality and great variety of voices. The Azure neural voices are the best.
on 1648001557
This is a great plugin that will save a lot of time. Wish more people knew about it
on 1647566767
Better than awesomeTTS,Although sometimes there will be mistakes.I don't know if it's the network or something else.
on 1647455319
Perfeito para aprender novo vocabulário em francês. :)
on 1647274141
This is must have add-on for any language learner. Audio boost your success rate. It makes memorizing easier. It is a new version of AwesomeTTS, which was awesome, indeed. But now you have presets button to add audio right above the fields in browser. So, many services, so many voices... I took me a few minutes to figure out how it works, but it is easy and pretty obvious. Adding audio was never so easy. It is one of the best thing that happened to Anki community. On top of that the author is very user oriented and reacts to requests. So don't hesitate to contact him if you have any ideas. And you can get a newsletter. Yes, the first add-on newsletter. I am extremely grateful for this add-on. Amazing. Pure gold.
on 1647084716
Works perfectly & responsive dev, great work!
on 1646751757
I have been using the previous version of Hyper-TTS for almost a year and it has been immensley helpful for language learning. Hyper-TTS is even easier to use in converting text into audio files for listening practice. I really like the feature of being able to have it randomly use different voices. The developer has been particularly helpful and responsive to my requests even adding a feature that I requested. I highly recommend Hyper-TTS.
on 1646723030
Fantastic program. Especially very nice to bundle voices together in one preset, and then apply random voices to your cards. Gives you some more dynamic when you listen to, for example, other languages, and you get familiar with some nuances in pronunciation. Definitely recommend!
on 1646707979
Great add on, especially now a preview button has been installed. HypertTTS makes adding speech to notes so much quicker than the previous version - which, mind you, I loved in its day. It would be so much harder to learn Thai without the TTS addons.
on 1646664929
Great add-on, as usual!
a new version has been released: many new feature are really welcome, like sound preview.
Some questions:
- Is there a way to set add audio on several notes at once (selecting the notes during the brosing and adding the preset audio at once...).
- I could not find "Latin" as a language. I remember it as available in version 1 of this add-on...
- is there a way to know if a note has been already processed by the add-on? I don't want to enter every single note to check it...

on 1646557352
For the benefit of others in the same boat, support walked me through how to get the equivalent tag for HyperTTS and it now looks something like this:
{{tts en_EN hypertts_preset=Front_realtime_0 voices=HyperTTS:Spanish}}

My favourite cool new feature of HyperTTS - the ability to look up Forvo first (for real human pronounciations), and failing which, falling back on a second computer-generated voice. This allows for a more realistic pronounciation where possible. Best of both worlds!

More intuitive, yes, but sadly, I can't use it as is :(

I use on-the-fly translation and conditional replacements like
{{tts ru_RU voices=AwesomeTTS:Spanish}}

which HyperTTS can't seem to do at the moment.
Comment from author
Many thanks for following up on this, and for the benefit of other users, this syntax allows using realtime audio if the Audio field is empty.
on 1646517832
I've been using AwesomeTTS for about two years and just installed HyperTTS. Not only does the new add-on have all the impressive perks of the old version, it is also far more intuitive and better designed. As always, Luc is super helpful answering questions quickly and professionally. HyperTTS is a must-have for anyone who needs to add high-quality audio to their Anki cards. Definitely recommended!
on 1646364939
OMG. Super useful tools for learning language
on 1646317840
I have been using HyperTTS for awhile, and found that it is super useful to help me learn my Japanese and Korean! Really Good!
on 1646252561
I have been using awesomeTTS for a while and I can say that it really helps me with my German lessons. Now adding voices with the new HyperTTS is much easier, I really enjoy it. Thanks for this tool.
on 1646149265
really good thx for your work :)
on 1646097805
Pretty good, I prefer AwesomeTTS due the UI being a bit more complicanted and pratical. HyperTTS is better is you prefer a more "intuitive" and less all up in your face UI. Everything works though and I have no issues transitioning from Awesome to Hyper.
on 1646061980
Coming from AwesomeTTS which was a great plugin, HyperTTS is AwesomeTTS on steroids. Super logical interfaces and easy integration. Loving it!
on 1645977404
This is awesome! Especially, the feature that allows you to add random voice. Great work
on 1645808642
Um excelente Add-on! Um dos melhores e mais essenciais para aprender uma nova língua!
on 1645787988
I've been using the original app AwesomeTTS for a while now, have made thousands of cards using that tool. It was very helpful especially in familiarizing myself with the different sounds and pronunciations in Korean which is always the hardest part of language learning, at least for me. As useful as AwesomeTTS was, I also thought there could be room for improvement especially with how you had to open a separate dialog box and input the source and target whenever you wanted to add an audio recording to a card. HyperTTS solved all that and more, this made it so much easier to create audio on the fly with its presets. I also emailed the creator Luc about some minor issues that I found and he was incredibly responsive and provided solutions immediately. I'm very thankful for this Add-On as I know I would be so much further behind in my language learning if not for it.
on 1645719138
seems just like awesomeTTS except cleaner and more intuitive :)
on 1645643252
It is such a big improvement from AwesomeTTS. The Hyper version made it so much simplier and faster to add sound to my cards.
Also, not sure if this was something in Awesome, but with Hyper I can add sounds in mass, adding sounds to all my old cards.
on 1645634628
It is better than ever. Many improvements and stability. Essential for those who use Anki to study other languages.
on 1645632856
Big improvement from AwesomeTTS.
on 1645626902
Big improvement from AwesomeTTS. Much easier to add audio to your flashcards.
on 1645590311
Rate HyperTTS sem duvidas é incrivel.. super facil de usar e ajuda muito com as traduções disponiveis...
on 1645570997
The best add-on. An Awesome add-on for Anki that hou must have while you create your own Anki cards.
on 1645561417
Great but, i have this issue
error code:429(error: exceeded user lifeme quota)''}\n')
on 1645555019
Promising. I'm still learning how to use full potential.
on 1645551542
Love it. Easy to use, great varied voices.
on 1645544502
Great addon, even easier to use than AwesomeTTS.

One issue I've been having is that the hashing format seems to have changed which means that HTTS will attempt to overwrite ATTS sound clips if present. It would be great if the addon could attempt to use the hashing format that ATTS uses and skip overwriting / use the cache if the sound clip is identical.
on 1645536886
it's great! Now is so much easier to add audio to the card, thanks a lot for the improvement on the add-on.
on 1645509645
on 1645476143
This add- on is the most useful one I have ever used!
Nowadays I am studying either English and Spanish, and this add-on enable me to add the native natural sound automatically!
I can save many time because of it.
Thank you for inventing such a useful add-on
on 1645458283
Fantastic addon!
on 1645437794
I was using AwesomeTTS already, but HyperTTS makes adding voices to flashcards so much easier
on 1645391367
Super useful Addon
on 1645379410
I've been using Awesome TTS quite long for learning Chinese and Korean. But Hyper TTS is even better, it's more user friendly and easier to use. Great addon for anyone studying languages!
on 1645371619
A great add-on for me to learn. I have been using AwesomeTTS for a few months. Hope this could be better.
on 1645370866
This is amazing. Definitely a must have!
on 1645370825
It's easier and more useful than AwesomeTTS.
on 1645370507
I really like it.
This is a so so good add on.
Too convenient for creating cards, and the sound quality is beyond discussion !
on 1645348074
Works absolutely great. My question to remove text in brackets has been answered within a day and is now a separate setting. That‘s fantastic service. Thank you so much for making language learning more effective and enjoyable!
on 1645329488
Это великолепно!
on 1645315123
Enjoyed using this addon a lot (200,000+ Characters use as of now), very easy and convenient to use using presets. Yet to touch advance options but it looks promising. Kudos to teams!
on 1645300686
This is a great add-on! It really helps me study languages a lot easier
on 1645285930
The best addon I have ever Use.
on 1645285011
Works well, Azure TTS quota is reached too quickly, even with 1s timeout. Could you make it possible to limit 300 requests per minutes?
Comment from author
You can set the throttle_seconds setting to 0.2 to achieve this.
on 1645284091
Just incredible...
on 1645139222
Das ist toll. :)) Ich bedanke mich bei Ihnen für Ihre Mühe.
on 1645137056
Great update! Random voices is a cool feature!
on 1645026879
Works like a charm! Much easier to use then awesome TTS, Aside from somewhat slow load times, I like this better and will be switching.
on 1645021351
this dynamic of use became very good and fast, I wait for new updates and improvements.
on 1645009680
I have been using AwesomeTTS very intensively for years. But the new HyperTTS offers much more possibilities and is much clearer and easier to use. I am very happy about the new development.
on 1644987401
THE BEST add-on
on 1644967279
This is definitely a step up from the AwesomeTTS v1.57.0. HyperTTS is a more user-friendly.

As of a beta, it is very promising! Looking forward to a patched version!

Sadly, when I use Google TTS to generate audio with a personal API key, the add audio box says automatically the operation succeeded, but sadly no audio is added to my selected field.

Can you get in touch with me hypertts@airpost.net ? Using Google TTS with personal API keys should work perfectly fine.
