Let Final Draft 12 Read Your Script Back To You – The Narrator
Using The Final Draft 12 Narrator
Oftentimes when you’re writing, especially with a dialogue line, it’s not easy to judge how this line will sound if someone says it out loud.
That’s why Final Draft includes a so-called “Narrator”.
The narrator – as the same suggests – can read your script back to you so you can get a better feel for it. Of course this is not a substitute for a real actor saying those lines, but still, it’s a nice addition to only seeing the written text.
Before you can really use the Narrator, you need to assign the voices you want.
To do that, go to “Tools – Assign Voices”.
In the “Narrator” tab you define which elements are read by a narrator voice.
Once you’re done, click OK and then choose “Tools – Speech Control”.
If “read along” is activated the text that is being read is marked so it’s easier for you to follow along.
