I recently played with Adobe Voice and then showed it to my Leo, who has ASD and is a year 4 pupil.
Leo used it as a tool to complete his homework on Greek myths. Together we have played with a range of digital story telling tools both app and PC based, but I am taken aback by the features of Voice. It integrates picture, voice and clip art easily to make simple narrated stories.
Leo is someone who struggles with writing and his best work is when he creates on-screen. Though for him to be truly independent he needs something that will allow him to create and build very simply through easily learned processes. Is it too much to ask that the output looks good too?
This is where Voice ticks all the boxes.
And with all this it also outputs a portable and embeddable format, it doesn’t just stay within the app or reduce to a mere PDF.
Here then is Leo’s first go at both a Greek myth and Adobe voice.
Note – Voice embeds in most websites, but as this blog is wordpress.com it does not allow the embedding of iframe content, but other blogs would not be as fussy.
This versatile app could be used very easily in class for cross curricular ICT, to support SEN pupils or as resource for units in Switched On Computing. For example, 3.5 – We are Communicators or 1.5 We are Story Tellers.
