It's important to note that only the Premium voices, which are powered by ElevenLabs have a quota. The Standard voices do not have a quota restriction.

Your voiceover quota gets used up each time you apply a Premium voice to your project and understanding how your voiceover quota works can help you manage it effectively for your projects.

How is the voiceover quota calculated?

  • When you 'Apply' a Premium voiceover, the system generates the voiceover and applies it to your project.

  • The duration of the video, which is how long it takes the applied Premium voice to read through the text in your project, is calculated and deducted from your quota.

  • For example, if you have 120 minutes of voiceover quota, and you apply a Premium voice on a project where the duration is 5 minutes, those 5 minutes will be subtracted from your quota, leaving you with 115 minutes of voiceover quota.

When does voice-over quota deduction happen?

  • When you apply a Premium voice by clicking 'Apply' the voiceover generation process begins in the background.

  • Once the voiceover is fully generated and applied to the project, the voiceover quota will be deducted to reflect this change. The deduction from your quota is determined by the duration of the video.

  • Note that the estimated video duration is an approximation. The actual video duration becomes known only after you apply the voiceover, and it's this duration that is deducted from your quota, not the initial estimate.


What happens if you change the text in your video?

  • When you modify the text in your video following the application of a Premium voice, the existing voiceover will require updating to align with the new text.

  • However, the voiceover won't be regenerated for the entire text; rather, it will only be updated for the scenes where text alterations were made.

  • Consequently, your voiceover quota will only be deducted based on the duration of the changes made in the affected scenes, not for the entire video.

  • To prevent unnecessary depletion of your voiceover quota, we recommend finalizing your script before applying a premium voice.

Can you restore your quota after removing a Premium voiceover?

  • Once you've applied a Premium voice to your video and it has been deducted from your quota, there's no way to retrieve it, even if you remove the voiceover. Once the quota deduction occurs, it's irreversible.

We recommend previewing the voiceover by clicking the play button next to any AI voice option. This allows you to listen to a snippet of the voice to ensure it aligns with the style of video you're creating before applying it.

Does it seem like your voiceover application is taking longer than necessary? Here's why that might be happening.
