Folktells at a Glance

What’s in a Story?

They say a picture tells a thousand words, but pictures alone don’t add up to a story. Folktells allows you to turn photo albums into dynamic and informative stories that engage and entertain.

Short term memory loss can leave people wondering what’s going on in the lives of their friends and family. You can’t always be there to answer their questions about the lives of their loved ones.

Let Folktells help.

Folktells text-to-speech feature reads the stories aloud, making it perfect for those whose vision may be failing or who struggle with reading.

Support Engagement with Scheduled Stories

Engage your loved ones by setting up scheduled prompts for stories. Each day at the set time(s), Folktells will announce that there is a story available. Stories are selected randomly to ensure a variety of pictures and stories are experienced.

Folktells announces the story with text and speech, then waits for a button tap or verbal confirmation before continuing.

If no interaction is received, Folktells returns to the familiar home screen.
