RTV Announces New AudioPal Text to Speech Options

AudioPal Virtual Tour Text to Speech

Hello RTV fans! As many of you already know, computer generated voice over narration is a great up-sell opportunity for your virtual tour productions or at the very least a wonderful way to differentiate you from your competition. Clients love the ability to choose from scene level, as well as tour level narration to add interest and personalization to their virtual tour presentations.

We are happy to announce the AudioPal computer generated voice over narration system has been updated. There are now 25 English voices with several accent choices, as well as many multi-language options. You will no longer be limited to 5 voices only in English! We have chosen Laura as the default option and we believe you will agree she is a great choice for virtual tours of all types.

Earlier this year Amazon acquired our former AudioPal technology partner and implemented new pricing that was several times higher than before. We were also unable to continue creating audio files the way we had programmed the system to do so. A change in providers was required and we were forced to seek out an alternate solution. We believe that the combination of offering many more voice options as well as keeping rates low for AudioPal subscribers will make this tour add on a much better value for our customers. We sincerely hope that you feel the same way! Please take a moment now to check out this virtual tour with several of the new AudioPal voices in it. Let us know who you like best and feel free to skip through the voices within the tour http://fusion.realtourvision.com/143288

If you don’t currently have an AudioPal subscription and would like to try it please go ahead now and give it a whirl. RTV will be honoring any AND ALL AudioPal trial requests that come in throughout the month of April, even if you’ve had a trial before.

We would like to encourage all of you to give it a try on your virtual tour productions and stand out among the competition.

Login to your TMS now at http://manage.realtourvision.com, click on any of your virtual tours to go into edit mode. From there look under the “Additional Services” menu and choose AudioPal. Request a trial account from this page or go ahead and make your purchase if you’re ready to do so! You will be glad you did.

Sincerely,

Staging Kitchens With The RTV Virtual Staging Software

Virtual Staged KitchenThis week’s virtual staging tip deals with treating vacant kitchens.

As a real estate virtual tour photographer, I will often make suggestions prior to the shoot to the home owner or agent. For kitchens I suggest removing towels, most small appliances, knives and replace with contrasting colorful fruit. A bowl of fruits and vegetables can look great! Like many photographers, I provide a staging list prior to the shoot.

For the best look, virtually stage the way you normally recommend staging to agents or home owners.

Many photographers don’t touch staging in a house but for those of you that rearrange kitchens how do you handle staging? Often 5 minutes of minimizing in a kitchen makes a huge difference. Some agents keep a few staging supplies in their car such as fruit bowls.

Virtually stage primary rooms for a polished look: living, dining, master, bedrooms, kitchens and outdoor areas. The RTV stager has added several fires available for fireplaces that may give an extra pop. Generally, after I stage a living area I like to take 5 minutes in Photoshop to add a fire and TV image.

The RTV Virtual Stager now has over 2,000 staging items in the library, Look under kitchens to find perfect staging items. If you have issues with getting items to sit properly on counters you can use the re-calibrate button and change the ceiling height. Training blogs will be available weekly as well as webinar training. There is also help and training directly on the RTV staging platform. Just visit the “?” for helpful tips.

Go ahead and create your best staging job to submit here:

The Lightroom Class From The 2015 Convention Series Is Now Available

Lightroom is one of the most powerful tools in a virtual tour photographer's bag of tricks. The question is are you getting the most out of Lightroom? 

Beth Nixon, RTV's Lead Digital Imaging Specialist taught this informative class at our 2015 virtual tour provider convention in Orlando, Florida. From the feedback, we have heard she did a great job. We can't speak highly enough about Beth's photo editing skills. Her title is well earned, and she is a wealth of knowledge.

We have recreated the class she taught at the virtual tour provider convention into this informative webinar available for all RTV RPM members. You will learn powerful ways to create collections and use keywords to help organize your files. She also shares her workflow as she works through the development module within Lightroom all the way to the finishing touches in Photoshop. There is something to learn from this class whether you are new to the Adobe photography suite or a long time user.

If you aren't a RPM member yet we hope you will consider joining. There are countless hours of classes covering professional photography, virtual tour photography, post processing to marketing and much more. You will also have access to a large collection of virtual tour related marketing materials you are welcome to download and customize for your own virtual tour business.

As always we hope you enjoy this webinar. If you have suggestions for future classes or would be interested in co-hosting a show please let us know.  We'll be posting the 2015 RTV Convention Green Screen class here real soon so make sure you're on the lookout for that show!!

Finally, Please keep an eye out for our up and coming Tour Track 2016 webinar that we have teed up for next week.
