Adobe Voice Provides a Great Way to Create Narrated Picture Stories

Screen Shot 2014-05-08 at 11.52.38 AM Adobe Voice is a new iPad app that makes it easy to create beautiful picture stories. Like other picture story apps, Adobe Voice allows you to record your voice, import pictures, and write text to create a short video. What makes Adobe Voice better than a lot of apps similar to it is the huge gallery of more than 25,000 images, icons, and music tracks that you can use if you don’t have media of your own to use in your story.

To create a story with Adobe Voice you start by select a story template (you can change templates at any time). After choosing a template you construct your story by recording your narration for a frame then adding an image or text to the frame. You can import your own image, take a picture, or select one of the stock images provided by Adobe Voice. To find a stock image or icon you simply enter a search word and then select from the search results. In that regard it is similar to Haiku Deck’s image search tool. If you decide to add text to a frame, the text will automatically resize as you type. Music is automatically added to the background of your narrated Adobe Voice story. You can change the music by tapping the edit option and selecting a different track.

Publishing and sharing your completed Adobe Voice story requires you to either register for a free Adobe account or sign-in with a Facebook account. Unfortunately, there doesn’t appear to be an easy way to save your stories directly to your iPad’s camera roll. (Of course, I may have overlooked something, but I didn’t see any direct save option in any of the app’s settings).

Adobe Voice is currently a free iPad app.
