Project: I went about developing a web app that allows anyone to quickly create an audio tour for free:
I also integrated Amazon Polly to automatically generate audio based on text inputs. This further increases ease of use by eliminating the need to record and edit audio.
It was a great learning experience since I learned rails from scratch and don't have a background in programming. Now to see if I can get more people to use it!
Of course in a museum is perfect but based on geolocation it doesn't have to be linear, you can go anywhere in the museum and get voice/text about that particular place/masterpiece and when they are changed then easily change the audio/text for the place.
If you were able to get enough content I think that would be an incredible app/service.
Is your site still up? I would be interested to see it.
Exactly. Wonderful service with world wide use and translatable to all languages. You definitely would need "curators" for every place and at the beginning let people add their own transcripts in order to build a huge database.
I'm hoping my site will be more helpful for smaller, less tech savvy, organisations who want to create their own tours. Many of these sites create tours in house or charge a pretty penny to create your own app.
I actually had the options to include custom audio and record audio in the browser. I took them out to simplify the product but I would definitely consider re-implementing them if there was demand.
Do you have a website? If so you should share it, would be interesting to see what you're doing.
