Learn about Adobe Voice, a new story and presenting tool for the iPad.
By: Geetesh Bajaj
Adobe Voice is an iPad app that makes creating narrated presentations a snap. All you need to do is add slides (Voice calls them pages), add your text or visuals, and narrate. You don't even need a microphone since Voice uses iPad's microphone to create crisp voice-overs.
Adobe Voice is free to download and use – you do need iOS 7 or higher though. Once installed,
you'll see the Adobe Voice icon on your iPad, as shown highlighted in red
within Figure 1, below.

When you tap the icon to launch Voice for the first time, you typically bring up the
Welcome screen within the Explore tab (highlighted in red
within in Figure 2, below). Any existing stories you have created will be available here,
as also the + Create a New Story option (highlighted in blue
within in Figure 2).

However, once you have used Adobe Voice, you will no longer see the Welcome screen by default.
Instead you will see the Projects tab (highlighted in red
within in Figure 3, below). Any existing stories you have created will be available
within this tab, as also the + Create a New Story option – as shown highlighted in
blue within Figure 3, below.

In this series of tutorials, we will look at the various options to create quick narrated presentations in Adobe Voice. Meanwhile, this walkthrough video will give you a fair idea of Adobe Voice’s capabilities.
