Talking QR Code – that makes sense!

Listen to audio

Accessible service for all

A talking QR code has many advantages. Because it has never been so easy to offer content in audio format.

Talking QR Code: Convenient & accessible

Due to space constraints, content is often only offered in very small print, e.g. on food and in directions for use.
On posters, they are even not presented at all.

Then QR codes provide a link to call up all additional information.
However, having to read on the smartphone display, possibly in strong sunlight, is not always easy. So it would be great if a talking QR code could also read the whole thing out aloud!

It goes without saying that information in written form is not accessible at all for people with visual impairments.
Here, too, a talking QR code is the ideal solution, because it is barrier-free. And people with reading disabilities also benefit from audio.  This affects millions of people even in the EU! More…

Having to read often is anything but comfortable, for many even impossible. A talking QR code is the solution!

QR codes for audio files

One advantage of QR codes is that they are already a standard. No wonder, therefore, that they are now being used to convey audio content. After all, audio is on the rise for a number of reasons. More…

What’s more, a talking QR code is just as easy to create as QR codes to websites.
You simply enter the link to hear the audio file, which is directly accessible on a platform or website. This can be a piece of music or audio book as MP3 or MP4.

However, when it comes to content that is only available in written form, the audio version must of course first be created. Either studio recordings or voice assistants come into question for this. The latter are, of course, much cheaper.

Offline audio with NFC

But what to do if there is no Internet access at all at the planned location?

Nature parks with mountains and gorges, castles with meter-thick walls, deep grottos, caves and mines. They all have the same problem: there is no reception for the smartphone!

This means that all the beautiful, interactive apps, but also the talking QR code unfortunately will not work. Great that there’s an alternative:
The SpeechCode software generates an audio file using voice assistants. This is small enough to fit on a colored data code or an NFC tag. Thus, the content is accessible offline – anytime and anywhere!
