What is ReplayKit?
talkr uses ReplayKit to render movies. If your device does not support ReplayKit, you will be told so when you touch the camera button. ReplayKit is only supported on iOS 9 or higher, with device models more recent than the following versions: iPhone 5, iPod Touch 5th Gen, iPad 4, iPad mini 1.

Can you make two faces in the same image talk?
Yes, just import the image into talkr a second time to set up the second face. See below to see how to create a scene with different faces talking.

How do you get different faces talking to each other?
You will need another clip in your scene. To add a second clip, select the scene you want to edit, then hit the editor icon to open the clip editor. Hit the plus icon to create a new clip as shown here.

Can I change the text to speech pitch and rate?
Yes. Select the scene you want, hit the editor icon to open the clip editor. Select the clip you want to edit, then hit the editor icon on the clip to bring up the text to speech properties editor as shown here.

Can I use audio files?
Yes, talkr version 2.4 added support for generating animations from audio files (wav, mp3, aif, m4a, mp4, aac, and other formats) from the Files app . To get audio into the Files app, you can email yourself with an audio file attached, and "Save to Files" from the Mail app as shown here, or you can save audio files to your dropbox directly from safari as shown here.

How do I download enhanced voices?
Enhanced voices are downloaded from the iOS Settings app. The iOS Settings app comes with your device. It is where you change your Wi-Fi. Go to Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> Speech. Enable "Speak Selection", then select Voices. For additional help, see apple support.

I can't record videos. After the video plays, the app gets stuck or I get an error saying "An unknown recording error occurred."
iOS 10.3 introduced an issue where ReplayKit fails to launch the preview screen. Newer versions of talkr will report this error as "An unknown recording error occurred." Older versions of talkr will get stuck and need to be restarted. If the problem persists, try restarting your iPhone.
