What should I put for tone of voice?

Some templates allow you to augment the tone of voice for the output you're generating.

You might be thinking, "which tones of voice has the AI been programmed in?" The answer is that it can understand almost anything you can throw at it. There is no pre-defined list, so you can try anything you want. 

Jasper follows patterns

Remember that Jasper loves following patterns. So if you're writing funny content using short, choppy sentences and hit Compose, Jasper will be likely to match the style and tone of your content and continue writing funny content in short, choppy sentences.

Want to find out your tone of voice?

Use our new Tone Detector template to discover your unique tone of voice with the help of Jasper ✨ Simply paste previously written content in, and Jasper will tell you what your tone of voice is. You can use the output throughout your app to generate content that matches your voice or brand! 

Using tone of voice inside a document

You can also describe the tone of voice you want in the content brief. 

For example, you could put in the content brief section, "Write a marketing email using Jerry Seinfeld as the tone of voice."

Or in Boss Mode, include the tone of voice in the command like this, "Write a few headlines about the above that sound like Ryan Reynolds."

There is no pre-programmed list of tones that Jasper knows, so feel free to test and try lots of ideas. But if you want a list of ideas to get started, you can always use our list of tone ideas below:
