  • How do I enable Text to Speech in WoW?
  • Can I turn on Text to Speech options in World of Warcraft?

To easily enable Text to speech while logged in to your character in World of Warcraft, open the chat box and type the following, then press enter: /tts on

You can also enable Text to Speech voice from the Interface menu while logged in to the game following these steps:

  1. Open the game menu (Default hot key ESC)
  2. Click on Interface, the fifth option from the top, to open that menu
  3. Choose Accessibility,  the ninth option from the top in the Game tab
  4. Put a check in the box next to Read Chat Text out loud
Doing either of the above will enable the button labeled Configure Text to Speech below the Read Chat Text out loud option and a button to the far left of the default World of Warcraft User Interface with a T and a dialogue bubble. Both of these will take you to settings which can help you configure the text to speech options in a way that is most helpful to you.
