What's New

Pictello 3.2 adds two new French children’s voices: Elise and Valentin. The voices are available in two variants; one that supports the Belgian French way of speaking numbers between 70 and 99 and one speaking those numbers the Parisian French way.

Both voices can be downloaded for free from within the app. With these new voices Pictello now offers free genuine children’s voices for 7 different languages/dialects.
