Narrated Actions

Narrated Actions enhances your character's presence by providing text descriptions of their appearance, surroundings, actions and more. This is generated based on the conversation, providing additional cues such as the character's appearance or surroundings.

When enabled, Narrated Actions generate alongside character dialogue to provide additional immersion. Spoken dialogue always lives outside of the Narrated Actions, in the character’s dialogue.

Once you’ve enabled Narrated Actions, you will see highlighted text adding context and scenario descriptions alongside the character’s spoken text.

Studio Configuration

By default, Narrated Actions in Studio is on. To disable narrated actions, uncheck the checked purple box in the top right of your character’s page. Narrated Actions are configured per character, not per workspace.
