Telegraph: Tune into the audio guide!

Saturday, 24 November 2007

Nick Trend’s homage to the world of audio guides is an inspiring look at some examples of current audio experiences especially at museums and galleries, and he states why he likes audio guides:

“If you want more detailed explanations, you have to rely on human guides (very variable), general travel guides (very sketchy on most cultural sites) or the museum’s or site’s own guidebook (often awkward to read while you tour).

The best solution is to hire an audio guide, and it always surprises me how few visitors use them.”
