App Description

Make a personalized, fun and interactive story for your child with Picture Talk, the Interactive Image Maker!

Designed for parents to create interactive presentations with personalized audio and text for young children, Picture Talk consists of a parent's interface and a child’s interface. The parents interface allows you to select an image from the iPad's photo album, and then record your voice to attach to various spots in the image. For example, an image of a group of animals can make an interesting presentation for babies. You can quickly and easily make a button on top of each animal, label it with text and record the corresponding audio description. Your presentations can then be saved on the iPad for viewing and editing in the future. In the child’s interface, parents can encourage children to touch the interesting objects in the picture. The text annotation label will pop out, the recorded voice will play, and your child will have a fun time imitating the sound. This is a great exercise to enhance your child's speech development.

Picture Talk's interface is carefully designed with both parents and children in mind. When a list of presentations is shown, it is straightforward for your child to touch one thumbnail to enter their interested presentation, but it requires a long-touch gesture to reveal the menu of “delete” and “edit” functions, which are designed for parents only. This intuitive design makes it less likely for children to accidentally delete or edit a presentation, yet it looks simple and elegant.

Picture Talk allows parents to create simple, personalized, audio book like presentation for their children. With Picture Talk, it is easy to turn a children’s paper book into interactive audio book to engage and entertain your child for hours!
