Weatherby Lake Waterfront!!!
Weatherby Lake, MO
This Spotlight Tour features the lakefront home of Marlin & Linda Cone. Some of you may know Marlin, as he was one of the co-founders of FloorPlanOnline and performed a sales role for many years before going back to real estate. It’s a special listing, in part because of the great memories the property has provided the Cone Family over the last 20+ years, but also because we customized the slideshow video with some video clips, text slides and a voice over that was generated from a text script. The base video is right out of the FloorPlanOnline video engine. So things like the text explainer slides and video clips are something anyone can add in a few clicks. The voice over is custom, but it is something we are looking to add in for automated voiceovers for any video.
Yes, the voice you hear narrating is all computer generated from a text script using an AI-based text to speech engine. Our inspiration for this was the Val Kilmer documentary of his life – because of his throat cancer, Val was unable to clearly speak for the documentary, but as you can hear in the promo video, it’s his voice, which was synthesized specifically for the documentary. Well, we took this text script that was created using Google Docs, shared with the Cone Team for edits, and then the voice over was generated and added to the video…again the base video media was generated from the built-in FloorPlanOnline video editor.
The question for you – is this feature something you would want and use on your virtual tour videos?
We are contemplating providing a service to do this in phase I, and then provide a more integrated way to generate the voice over through the edit video tool in Phase II, if phase I is successful and desired from a customer perspective. Please view the video and let us know your thoughts via our survey. Your answers can help shape how we move forward with this voice over feature.
Want different voices?
We could also allow you to select different voices. Hear the description of our 3D Walkthrough Tour by Ava, one of the virtual voices. She sounds pretty darn good. Do you agree?

As a side note, if you have a blog, we highly recommend you do something similar each time you get a listing. The listing and tour is great content for your blog or your social media channels, so leverage it. Send an email to your base, directing them to your blog post.
All you need to do to embed the whole tour into your website is use this “iframe code” on your site. Most blogs allow you to embed youtube videos or other content. Our tour can be just some of that content. You can even just copy and paste this code – just replace the tour ID that is bolded with your tour ID. Note it uses the TOUR format, which is a fixed frame. replace the word tour with story and you embed the single property page version (although because you have to scroll it is not recommended for embedding).
