The TellDing acoustic information and guidance system in Leipzig's Grassi Museum

TellDing im Grassimuseum

At several locations and stations within the museum building and the exhibition, visitors are now informed acoustically about what they are facing or where and how they can get further. The TellDing system responds with different content depending on the visitor’s language or information needs. Without a cell phone or app, without an audio guide to take along. You simply wear a lanyard with an electronic entrance ticket (TellDing avatar) around your neck. The TellDing then provides the appropriate information at the elevator or exhibit or guides blind visitors to it.

Das Erklärvideo zeigt den TellDing Avatar

The explanatory video in the museum shows the TellDing avatar. Children receive different or differently prepared content than adult, foreign-language, blind or disabled visitors. Also, the distance from which the audio message is output may differ depending on the user:in. The elevator should announce itself to a blind visitor from a distance, while the exhibit will not output the description until it is in close proximity. More information can be found on the website TellDing.com

The installation includes the device and a small speaker

The TellDing® comes to the GRASSI Museum für Völkerkunde zu Leipzig

An exhibition should be a multimedia experience and accessible to all. No complex installations will be made and no app or devices are necessary.

The TellDing® system, developed by me, reverses the technical bring and is exactly for this reason extremely interesting and without alternative for certain applications!

The task:

An object should 1. be able to be found only by hearing (in the dark or for blind visitors:inside).

2. the object should identify itself and provide audio or video.

The users do not need 3. a device or an app.

Use cases:

The exhibits in the exhibition are recorded.
A door, an elevator, the stairs, the toilet – i.e. the destination guidance.
The room text or ambient sound should be played.

The visitor does not need the guide or the smartphone in his hand. The intelligence is in the device at the exhibit or at the POI (such as doors, elevator, room text). It recognizes what it should offer him/her on the basis of an element carried by the visitor on the lanyard.

An audio information and guidance system entirely without an app. Accessibility fast and inexpensive.

TellDing ist ein Plug & Play Audioguide

A system informs your visitors without any effort.

TellDing is installed in the museum at the exhibit, doors and stairs, room information, etc. The visitor approaches the corresponding information point or exhibit with his visitor’s card (entrance ticket) and receives audio information in his native language. Blind visitors get detailed audio description. As a talking point, the TellDing even helps blind visitors find the object or door or elevator by simply allowing the visitor to follow the audio source. Ingeniously simple! And no great cost to set up.

Instant audio guide. Information on the object itself provides orientation and information for everyone

TellDing ist ein "instant Audioguide" und Orientierungssystem in einem.

TellDing® is a system that provides visitors to a building or exhibition with individually adapted information about the object via audio. This audio information can also be used for orientation towards the object. An elevator or a staircase will therefore speak „Stairs to floors 2 to 8“ from any distance that can be preset. A blind visitor can then orientate himself and move precisely. More information at TellDing.de

TellDing is an „instant audio guide“ and orientation system in one.

Hidden or exposed, it uses a proximity sensor to provide information in the language and depth of the visitor’s individual needs.

TellDing as an orientation system provides blind visitors with acoustic guidance to the object.
