Free App Friday – Adobe Voice

Adobe-Voice-app-for-iPad-allows-users-to-create-a-video-presentation

 

Adobe Voice creates polished, visually interesting, and thoughtful narrative based presentations. Adobe Voice may not be the best product for creating large scale lecture, but it is perfect for short demos, how-to, bios and more. As teachers we are always telling stories. Stories activate our students’ memories and stimulate their imaginations. With Adobe Voice, you can start telling your music stories today, or better yet, have your students tell theirs.
