For some time I’ve been using Adobe Voice and telling as many people as I could meet to do the same. An incredibly simple video creation app adobe voice seemed unparalleled. However I work in a primary school and it was pointed out that I was asking children to use an app that was rated 12+. At first this baffled me…why would such a seemingly innocuous app have such a high age range limitation? The answer was discovered in the fact that there is a web search option available from within the app. So disappointing not to be able to use such a fantastic app with younger children. Where to next? Enter Vidra.
Vidra does everything that Adobe Voice can do (slick slide by slide video animation) with the addition of two distinct advantages. The first and most important initially was that there was no internet search available within the app, thus making it user friendly for primary school children. The second was the addition of the sketch tool allowing me to create simple sketches as part of video. In every other way it is very similar to Adobe Voice. If you work with older children feel free to check out both, I find there is very little difference between the two. For those that have never seen either, take a look at this example video created in vidra -
