technology. Specifically designed for the mobile experience, this new
app features an easy-to-use interface and professional-grade production
technology that makes crafting a clear, engaging and impressive animated

Story starters and example videos to draw users into the
experience with an inspirational video feed from the community; and a
"wheel" of story ideas to provide helpful prompts that give meaningful
structure right from the first click.
Beautiful graphics that can be added from a library of over
25,000 professionally designed icons, millions of images on the Web or
a user's own photos.
A cutting-edge graphics engine inspired by Adobe's
market-leading After Effects tool that automatically applies cinematic
graphics to a story in real time, including motion blur, 3D, shadows
and hundreds of other professional quality effects.
Animated themes, specially designed for all kinds of stories
that can dynamically apply animation effects and make content come to
life, from a dusty chalkboard drawing style to animated watercolor
that looks like you're literally painting images on screen. With just
a ingle tap, selections can be made to make videos visually
A selection of music to help set the right mood for the message
and automatically balance with the Adobe Voice recording to make it
seem like it was captured in a professional sound booth.
A credits and attribution page that is automatically
added to the end of all videos to ensure that every Creative Commons
icon or image used is accounted for, so users don't have to worry
about usage rights.
Winston Hendrickson, vice president products, Creative Media Solutions,
"Adobe Voice puts the power of Creative Cloud's industry-leading video
and audio technology into the hands of the masses. Our move to
Creative Cloud has given us a much broader canvas for innovation and
attracted many new users to Adobe. We believe Adobe Voice, and other
mobile apps expected in the next few months, will continue the
momentum we're seeing."
Jeff Larson, teacher at Balboa High School in San Francisco
"The story starter functions in Adobe Voice allow my students to
quickly ascertain what their intent and purpose is. It gives them a
nice framework, and guides them step-by-step through what they want to
say. One of the things I really enjoy seeing is the students'
excitement about working together to tell and share stories and ideas
with each other. As a teacher in a school that also has an integrated
curriculum, I can see my students being able to use Adobe Voice in a
variety of classes-quickly and immediately."
Adobe Voice is available immediately as a free
download in the App Store. The app requires iPad 2 or higher and iOS
7. To learn more about Adobe Voice, visit www.getvoice.adobe.com.
