An audio trail builds a story, guiding visitors from one point of interest to the next.
Our audio guides create a journey of audio discovery, brought to life by a narrator, oral reminiscences, sound effects, music and/or characterisation. They add a layer of magic to any walk, trail or hike.

Straight from the horse’s mouth
Audio trails are at their most engaging when they use the voices of people who know those stories best. Involving young people in the process is a very rewarding experience too.
Audio trails (you may called them audio guides or audio tours) are unobtrusive and provide stories without visitors having to look at a screen, booklet or interpretation panel. They are a perfect solution for visually impaired visitors. They are created as MP3 files – a universal music format – and are easily added to a website, app or museum/visitor centre hardware, ready to be enjoyed by visitors.

What is interpretation?
Interpretation is a communication process, designed to reveal meanings and relationships of our cultural and natural heritage, to the public, through thought-provoking first-hand involvement with objects, artefacts, landscapes and sites. [adapted from Interpretation Canada]
Interpretation therefore translates the technical language of experts into the informal ‘everyday’ language of visitors. It has an authoritative air, but goes beyond just providing information; it is revelation based upon any statement of fact. For the communication to be interpretative, it must improve visitors understanding and enjoyment through provoking interest, relating to their experience and revealing something new. The same communication processes are used to create powerful adverts for tv, radio, print.
