Pictello App for Creating Talking Photo Albums

Pictello app

Pictello is a simple way to create talking photo albums and talking books on your iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. Learners can use this app to create stories that include photos with text, and short video clips with audio that can be activated by touching the screen.  Each page in a Pictello Story can contain a picture, up to five lines of text, and a recorded sound or text-to-speech using high-quality voices.  Anyone can make a story to share important events or their latest holiday pictures with family who live far away. Individuals who have difficulty speaking use it to share their news and interests or to participate in a social conversation. Teachers use it for social stories, schedules or language learning.
