Known errors and solutions

We've found some errors that have quick fixes. If you've received an error not listed below, let us know!

  • Please format your respelling correctly or Respelling must wrap some text 
    We typically see this error when there's a special character before or after a Respelling replacement. 

    Enter a space between the character and respelling or remove any special characters before or, in some cases, after the Respelling. 

    This error occasionally occurs when a Respelling is used in a URL. You can also create a Replacement so Avatars will say: → our product dot com

    For more Respelling error fixes, check out our guide.

  • Unable to load audio due to invalid src
    When you see this error, Studio is having a hard time connecting to the server. If your session has gone inactive, try refreshing your browser, closing your tab, opening a new one, or signing out of Studio and signing back in again.
  • Text cannot contain these characters
    This error appears when a character entered cannot convert to speech. If the error message displays the character, delete or replace the character. If no characters are indicated, ensure your text is in plain format without any formatting tags.
  • An error occurred while decoding the audio file
    This sometimes occurs when a browser contains corrupted data. Try refreshing or clearing your cache and try again.
