Have people heard of this? It automatically converts text to pictographs. It doesn’t seem bad for simple, concrete nouns. Verbs and sentences sometimes seem to come out a little odd (for example “walking” is a picture of three footprints). Maybe some users who can’t read or can’t read well could benefit from something like this?

Here’s a demo (works for English, Spanish and Dutch)
