Installation

First, log into your WordPress dashboard and click on “Plugin”:

WordPress dashboard and click on “Plugin”:

Click “Add New” next to the “Plugins” headline:

Once you can see that, the installation was successful. Congratulations!

Setup

Now let’s go over the different setup options in the Trinity Audio management tab:

  • Add player to all posts: bulk activation of the player on all posts. Press this button if you would like to activate the player across all of your content. Once you click on it, you should get visual feedback on the progress of the action:
Trinity Audio WordPress plugin add player to all posts
  • Please stay on the page until the process is complete and the button reappears:

Please bear in mind that some of the processes happen on the backend and it might take some time for the player to appear on all pages (depending on the number of posts you have published).

  • Source language: here you can indicate the default language your posts are written in. In the case that you have multiple languages on your site, don’t worry as you can choose the source language for each separate post as well.
  • Display Powered by TrinityAudio: select this option if you would like to be a friend and give us credit. This will also help your colleague (aka other content creators) reach out to us easily once they see the player on your site, get excited and want to add it to their site too. Now is a good time to remind you that we are providing the plugin for free 🙂 (cough).
  • Gender: choose the default gender voice for the content. If you would like to choose it a different gender per post, you’ll be able to easily do so from the post menu.
  • Player position: The position of the audio player on your page. We recommend placing the player before post, meaning before the main article text.
  • Player label: Specifies optional text you’d like to be shown above the audio player (HTML tags are supported with this label). For example, here we chose “Check our new audio content!”:

  • New post default: Specifies whether the player is automatically enabled for all new posts. Choose this option if you want Trinity Audio to add an audio player for each new post you publish.
  • Add post title to audio: If enabled, each audio file will start by reading the post title. If not, the player will start reading from the main text.
  • Add post excerpt to audio: If enabled, each audio file will read an excerpt from the post at the beginning of the audio (after the title, if chosen). Please check this option only if you know what is actually written in the excerpt as it is usually not part of the viewable content to the publisher.
  • Skip tags: Use this if you are using tags in your content and you would like the player to avoid reading those tags.

Recommended setup process

Now that you understand all the options in the menu, here are the recommended steps for configuring the plugin:

  1. Press “Add player” in the “Add player to all posts” section.
  2. Wait for all posts to be updated.
  3. Choose the default source language.
  4. Make sure the checkbox next to “Display Powered by TrinityAudio” is checked.
  5. Choose “Before post” in the “player position” section.
  6. Choose “Trinity Audio enabled” on the “New post default” section.
  7. Check the “Add post title to audio” title option.
  8. Click “Save Changes”.

Individual post configuration

Once you’ve finished the setup of the Trinity Audio plugin on your website, let’s see what kind of settings you can configure per post.
Click on posts:

Choose a post you would like to edit or add the player to:

Choose a post to add TrinityAudio plugin

scroll to the bottom of the page.
You will see the Trinity Audio menu:

Enable text-to-speech trinity audio

In this menu you can choose the following:

  • Enable Text-To-Speech (Trinity audio): make sure this is checked if you want the player to appear on this post.
  • Gender: here you will see the default gender reading the text based on your choosing. If you want to change it per this specific post, this is the place to do so.
  • Language: choose the source language of the post. By default, you will see the language chosen in the general plugin settings.

Once you’ve made sure the “Enable Text-To-Speech (Trinity audio)” is checked, click “update” post and the player will appear on the post. Click preview to see it in the position chosen in the general settings.
