Listen Technologies is expanding its offering in the tour space with the Listen Audio Guide System, a self-guided tour solution. Listen Audio Guides are the result of Listen Technologies’ recent acquisition of AudioConexus and its GPS commentary products, audio guides and tour guide systems. Listen Audio Guides eliminate the challenges tour participants face when they do not speak the local language or struggle to hear clearly. Tour operators can customize audio content and upload it on the wireless devices that tourists carry in their hands or pockets. Users select their preferred language and listen through the unit’s built-in speaker or with headphones. Infrared technology in the unit triggers location-specific audio content to play at the right time and place so users hear relevant and engaging stories about the sights they visit.
The Listen Audio Guide System is Listen Technologies’ latest solution to help operators of museums, galleries and other attractions capture market share in the tours and activities segment of the travel market, which is expected to reach $183 billion this year.
Listen Audio Guides are flexible and scalable to suit tour operator needs, whether they wish to start with one tour or 20. Tour operators can include up to 32 different languages or topics, and they can create stories to align with 950 points of interest. Ergonomically designed, push-button units are easy for visitors to use and feature a long-life power source so there is no need to change out units during the day. Units charge overnight in a convenient storage case.
Additional features of the Listen Audio Guide System include:
- Easy customization: Tour operators can add and remove audio files quickly with the included content management software.
- High-quality audio: Users hear clear, intelligible sound and can adjust volume settings to their preference.
- Dual-headphone jacks: Parents and children or couples can listen simultaneously and share their tour experience.
The Listen Audio Guide System is available globally and if you are at ISE they are in booth 7-C192 or you can see it here.
