Translate text to pictures
This feature involves automatically translating text into pictures that convey the same meaning as the text. This feature can be helpful to young children, people with cognitive disabilities, and others with literacy problems as an aid to written text or as a universal language.
Discussion by Disabilities
This feature helps users to understand text without necessarily understanding all of the written words – images can serve as a supplement to words or as a simple universal language to portray ideas.
