App That Lets You Record Family History From Old Photos Now Broadly Available and Free on Android and iOS
June 17, 2014 (MILL VALLEY, CA)--SpeakingPhoto®, the iOS and now Android app, turns pictures into stories with a simple audio recording tool to enhance and give value to any photo. From families recording voices under old photos, giving them new meaning and ancestry data, to businesses capturing real product testimonials, users can now personalize, add meaning and share SpeakingPhotos instantly via social media or privately via text and email.
“Traditionally photos have had a diminishing return because we forget the players in the story and over time the photo is a mystery,” stated SpeakingPhoto CEO and Founder Dawn Davis. “SpeakingPhoto changes all that by adding a voice, a valuable tool to keep memories alive forever,” Davis said.
Behind every SpeakingPhoto is a story that will hook you more than any standalone photo. Open the app, shoot your photo or choose one from your existing camera roll, record your message or story, save and share instantly via social media or privately to family, friends, co-workers. Tag up to eight SpeakingPhotos to build a slideshow and send the same way.
“We’re setting ourselves apart from youth-based sharing apps by creating a simple yet highly effective tool for people, companies and organizations who want to document, keep and share important stories with their communities and customers,” said SpeakingPhoto Partner and CMO Diana Parker. “We look forward to sharing more news this Fall.”

SpeakingPhoto is a software company and collaboration between Dawn Davis and Diana Iles Parker, two San Francisco Bay Area moms, business veterans, and social advocates. The concept of SpeakingPhoto originated from a project created for a school fundraiser, which showcased kindergarten artwork combined with voice-overs of children expressing their work. The emotional response from parents and their reaction to being able to capture moments and turn them into real stories prompted the development of SpeakingPhoto.
