How to set up text-to-speech notifications on Discord

You can target text-to-speech to particular messages that you receive or send.

If you turn on text-to-speech notifications, it doesn’t require the /tts command or additional activity to hear messages. When someone sends a message on a channel you will hear it read to you.

Discord app offers three text-to-speech notifications that are given below:

For all Channels

Turn on text-to-speech notifications for all messages in all channels that you are part of. I suggest you leave this off to ignore spam.

If you find any problem reading messages, then leave that channel you are not using to avoid a swarm of notifications.

For Current Channels

Turn on the text-to-speech notifications for the text channel that you are currently browsing. This setting works for particular channels, not server-wide. It doesn’t require the /tts command.


Disable all text-to-speech notifications for all channels and servers. It will disable text-to-speech notifications even if someone uses the /tts command.

It is really hard to avoid spam messages with all text-to-speech notifications turned on, harassment is against Discord Community guidelines.

These spam notification settings live in a different area than text-to-speech notifications. You can find those spam through:

  • Click on the Settings icon in Discord.
  • Select the Notifications option from the left menu under App Settings.
  • Select the type of notifications under text-to-speech notifications.
