Tourism – Audio Guide & talking signage

Visitor Information 4.0 – Text AND Speech

Whether quality, cultural or nature tourism:

If the information transfer on site is successful, the visitor experience will increase. This is why signage systems are still indispensable – despite websites, brochures, GPS, apps and other electronic solutions.

Now there is a smart combination of audio guide and speaking signage system that enhances the visitor experience – and is easy on the budget:

SpeechCodes let your signage talk

Leitsystem Signage Audio Guide

Customer-friendly & robust

Audio information was previously expensive, complex and tied to infrastructure. Therefore, only a few major attractions offer an audio guide. And then only for the most important highlights.

Now SpeechCode turns your existing guidance system into an Audio Guide:

  • The data is transferred directly to the smartphone via an NFC (Near Field Communication) Speech Tag, which holds all information. Therefore, no Internet access is required to retrieve the data. It works always and everywhere.
  • The free speechcode app for iOS and Android reads the NFC tag, displays your text on the display and simultaneously reads it out aloud – for up to 30 minutes (approx. 6 pages A4).
  • This audio guide leaves hands and eyes free for sports equipment and SightSEEing.
  • The direct transmission with NFC guarantees 100% data protection as well as the elimination of roaming charges – for guests from all over the world!
  • The Universal Design of the speechcode app is simple and intuitive. And due to the audio option barrier-free for people who find reading difficult or even impossible.
  • NFC Speech Tags work always and everywhere, without any power source and are absolutely weatherproof.

Economical & sustainable

Possible size and the associated costs usually drastically limit the amount of information and languages offered on signs.
An NFC Speech Tag requires only a 370th of the space of a 12-point print.

Much information on little space means:

  • Comprehensive information transfer in any number of languages – on signs of all kinds and sizes
  • Retrofitting to existing signage easily possible.
  • Significantly lower costs for new signs due to smaller size
  • Less interference in nature or monument protection
  • NFC Speech Tags are durable and rewritable

Cost-effective & flexible

Since NFC Speech Tags do not require the Internet, there is no need for expensive set-up and maintenance of W-LAN infrastructure.

The SpeechCode annual license includes:

  • Unlimited number of Speech Files
  • Use of all available languages
  • E-manuals & support

 

SpeechCode

XXL Audio Guide for Everywhere

Tourismus Audio Guide

Audio information is much more customer-friendly and convenient for SightsEEing than signs with printed text. And an audio guide additionally reaches visitors, who find reading difficult or simply dislike it.

However, sofar, only the most visited attractions offered audio guide services. Because studio recordings and complex technological infrastructure are expensive.
But now

SpeechCode facilitates a comprehensive and area-wide spread of Audio Guide Stations:

At the highly frequented cruise ship landing stage as well as at the remote mountain top or in the medieval town centre – always offline.
Because online solutions are only possible with an appropriate network infrastructure. Furthermore, most online solutions are not suitable for simultaneous “mass use” by more than 50 people.

Do it yourself!

You can easily create the Audio Guide Infos yourself online and transfer them to NFC Speech Tags.
But of course we also offer the “Full-Service” package:
You provide the raw information, we do the rest. After 2 – 4 weeks you will receive the NFC Tags in the desired languages – ready for mounting.
