# 📖tutorials

Hi there This tutorial will show you how to implement voice to your Botpress chatbot. Install [node.js](https://nodejs.org/en/download) Run these in the terminal of your project: npm init -y npm install express openai cors dotenv Rename the env file to .env Add your API key in the .env file. Add your own bot instead of mine in the index.js file. Add "type": "module", between description and main in the package.json file. Start the server by typing node server.js in the terminal and then you can start using your index.html file.

How can I edit the .env file in botpress?
f
You can't directly do it from Botpress. Why would you like to do it?
a
Your initial instructions said "Add your API key in the .env file." Just want to know how.
Can I do it somewhere else?
f
Ahh okay. You have to manually open the file and change it
a
Where is the file?
f
Remember to rename it to .env instead of env
I would guess in your downloads folder but depends on where you downloaded it to
a
Where would I download it FROM, and where would I upload it back to?
f
You download everything here from Discord
Create a folder for all of the files
a
Do you Import the files back into botpress when done editing?
Or is this all served from your website?
f
All on your website
You can see how it all works in my Youtube tutorial
