- Go to www.voki.com.
- Log in using the boxes in the top right corner. Use my email address: email@example.com. I will provide the password in class.
- Click the Create tab at the top left. It will automatically start you with a character and background, but you can change just about everything you see.
- Click the head button under Customize Your Character. Some characters (with graduation caps) are not available for us. I recommend looking in these categories: World, Classic, Toons, or Anime.
- You can edit the character's hair, clothing, size, and more. When you have finished, click Done. You can always go back.
- Click Backgrounds to edit the background picture.
- To make your character speak, click the T keyboard picture under Give It A Voice. Begin typing your text. You can choose from lots of different voices, but it's best to pick this after you have your paragraph typed so you can hear what the whole thing will sound like.
- To save your Voki, you must have something typed in the text section - to start, this can be as simple as typing "Hi" just so you can save. Click Done to exit out of the text section.
- For your Voki to save, you must click Publish. You can always go back to edit it later, even once it has been published.
- Save your Voki using your first name, a dash, and the author's last name. For example, I would save mine as Elaine - Kinney.
