Oct. 5, 2023
The method of having a voice conversation with ChatGPT differs depending on the device.
We will only introduce things that are easy and free to use!
How to have a voice conversation with ChatGPT
- For PC
- For smartphones and tablets
I will introduce the two scenes separately.
First, I will introduce the case of a computer.
1. For PC
If you want to read ChatGPT replies out loud on your computer, there are three methods:
- Using a plug-in for the web browser "Chrome" (compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux)
- For Windows: Settings → “Easy access” → Turn on “Narrator”
- For Mac: Settings → "Reading content" → "Selected items" are read out loud
Personally , I recommend using a plugin for the web browser "Chrome" (compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux) .
This is because it can read out loud for free, supports voice input, and is easy to set up.

The settings are different for each.
I'll start with the iPhone iPad.

Tap the "Reading" item → Reading will start .
Let's try it out.
I was able to read it easily like this. You can't choose the type of voice from a variety of voices, but Siri's voice 2 is the voice you're used to hearing.
2. [Free] How to talk with ChatGPT on Android
Settings required to read ChatGPT replies on Android
Android smartphones and tablets such as Xiaomi, OPPO, Galaxy, Google pixel, etc. have already completed the necessary initial settings. No special settings are required.
If you want to read out loud more easily, you can set a shortcut for "select and read out" .
Settings → Accessibility → Select to read → Set Shortcuts On .
*Since it is displayed all the time, it may feel like a nuisance. Please set it if necessary.
Let's try it out.
I was able to read it easily like this. You cannot select the voice type from a variety of voices.
The voice may differ slightly depending on the device you are using, so the voice may sound slightly different on your smartphone.
What other reading methods are there?
In addition to the method introduced this time, there are other methods such as linking a computer and Alexa using APIs, but the settings are a bit difficult for amateurs.
I tried looking into it, but unfortunately I didn't think I could do it. Therefore, I will not introduce it here.
What is ChatGPT? (actual reply from ChatGPT)
ChatGPT is a type of artificial intelligence.
Artificial intelligence is a technology in which computers are designed to have human-like intelligence. ChatGPT can learn a lot of sentences and generate sentences and answer questions like a human.
For example, if you ask ChatGPT, "What do dogs eat?" you can reply, "Dogs eat dog food." Also, if you say "Tell me about dogs" to ChatGPT, it will generate sentences about dogs.
ChatGPT can understand words just like a human, no more, no less. ChatGPT cannot have emotions or thoughts like humans.
ChatGPT is amazing! He writes sentences that really look like they were written by a human.
It's hard to follow the text with your eyes
Conversing with ChatGPT is a lot of fun, but following the replies can be tiring.
This audio reading function is very useful for people who are not good at reading text and find it easier to obtain information through their ears.
I also prefer Ondoku's Ondoku3-ChatGPT because I prefer listening to things rather than reading them.
Ondoku3-ChatGPT also supports voice input, so it feels like you're actually having a conversation.

When using ChatGPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer), try having the Ondoku3-ChatGPT plugin read it aloud. It's free and easy to set up.
Having your replies read out is very futuristic.
Has the singularity finally arrived?
I would like to enjoy this new era by experiencing new things more and more so as not to be left behind by the waves of the times.
