Pictello is a simple way to create visual stories and talking books. Each page in a Pictello Story can contain a picture, a short video, up to ten lines of text, and a recorded sound or text-to-speech using natural sounding voices. Stories can be shared with other Pictello users with iTunes File Sharing or via WiFi through Dropbox or a free account on the Pictello Sharing Server. Stories can be shared with non-Pictello users as PDF files through email, Dropbox, or iTunes File Sharing.
Pictello is developed for all ages and skill levels, so it is easy to use and requires no reading skills to locate and read stories. Pictello offers an easy visual story creation wizard so everyone can use pictures, video and sound to share important moments in their lives. An advanced editor gives full control of the editing capabilities.
*** Pictello is a universal app and can, without extra costs, be used on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad!
Pictello is localized in English, Spanish, French, German, Turkish, and Dutch. Natural sounding Text to Speech voices for over 26 languages and dialects are available as free downloads in the app, including unique American, British, and Australian English and German children's voices co-developed by AssistiveWare!
