Voki Banner



Voki enables users to express themselves on the web in their own voice using a talking character. You can customize your Voki to look like you or take on the identity of lots of other types of characters, animals, monsters, anime etc. Your Voki can speak in a variety of ways including your own voice which can be added via microphone, upload, or phone.
Voki can live on your blog, web page, social network profile and will soon be integrated in various instant messaging platforms. You will also be able to download it to most video supported phones.
