Picture Speech is an app that is designed to support you. Whether it is to support you in your learning, your occupation or just general reading within your daily life. Picture Speech allows you to capture and listen to any type of text. This app lets you listen to the text you have captured or written within the app. We’ve taken a number of steps to support everyones needs.
This app gives you the option to capture or insert text. You can capture text from various sources such as books, pictures and documents. If you were to insert text, then you can copy, paste or write your text in to listen to. With these two options, it can support you in all types of situations. For example, if you are struggling to read a document, Picture Speech gives you the confidence to stay independent. Rather than seeking help from others, you would simply capture the text into the app which you can then listen back to.
This entire app is designed to be simple with a clean user interface. We have also included a number of accessibility features such as a yellow background since research has shown white backgrounds should be avoided on paper, computers an visual aids as it can appear to be too dazzling for those who are dyslexic (http://www.bdadyslexia.org.uk/about-dyslexia/further-information/dyslexia-style-guide.html). We also offer the ability to change the speed of the reading voice and the gender. We are planning to include further accessibility features such as more colours as some individuals with dyslexia have their own colour preference. We welcome everyone to provide us with feedback on accessibility features that they would like to see at http://picturespeech.com/support.
