    How Kid in Story Book Maker Works
    To personalize stories, Enuma’s unique Locolens™ image detection technology allows you to superimpose your child or student onto the template backgrounds - similar to “green screening.” Just snap a portrait (or use one already saved in your library) and let Locolens™ pluck your kid out of the picture and place him or her directly in the story. You can even record your voice or child’s voice as the narrator. When the process is finished, children will enjoy reading their very own personalized visual story. Kid in Story makes it easy for parents to share their children's stories with other via email or Dropbox.
    4 Steps of Magic

    2. Take a photo of your child in front of solid-colored background.
    3. The background is automatically removed.
    4. If needed, make changes using the <Kids> <Background> button.

    “Bottom Line: Kid in Story Book Maker is a must-have story creation tool for teachers in special-needs settings.”

    “By involving the child in making the social story, the child receives an in-depth social skills session and then the book can be sent to the child's parent or caregiver via email or Dropbox for ongoing reinforcement of the skills. We found the ability to customize the story by placing the child's photo into the scene to be highly motivating and engaging for all users.”
