Conveying history digitally and mobile

Listen to audio

Smart solutions for smartphones

If you are thinking about conveying history today, you can no longer do without digital solutions.
A wide range of possibilities, from simple apps to virtual reality and interactive elements, make history more exciting than ever before!

Where digital solutions make sense

For good reason, many solutions are only used in closed rooms, i.e. in museums and exhibitions.
This is because digital installations often require power connections, speakers, VR glasses or other devices.

It’s easier to convey history with smartphone apps. Because the visitors themselves bring the needed device along.
Smartphone apps therefore also work in outdoor public places. A wide variety of apps are already available for city tours, historic cemeteries and parks. Scandinavia, for example, offers particularly exciting solutions for teaching history. More...

For digital solutions usually a must: Good, fast and stable Internet access!

Conveying history – without the Internet?

Unfortunately, 95% of all digital solutions fail if there is no appropriate Internet access on site.

This applies, for example, to excavation sites, old front lines from the world wars, concentration camp memorials, military cemeteries, museum villages, castles, historic mine tunnels and cellar vaults. But of course also to most of the natural monuments.
These are all places where, for a variety of reasons, there is no Internet. Often not even telephone reception.

That means finding smart solutions that work mobile and offline.

Mobile & offline – SpeechCode

With SpeechCode‘s cost-effective Audio Info, conveying history becomes possible anywhere.

Instead of large, expensive info boards with lots of text, small data codes or NFC tags are used.
Both media store the entire content (up to 30 minutes of audio).
As a result, data is transferred directly to the smartphone, completely independent of network access, even in flight mode.
The free speechcode app shows the text on the display and reads it out at the same time – thanks to voice assistants.
This keeps your eyes free for the historical objects.

Best of all: It also makes history education accessible for anyone who has trouble reading!
