How Talking Wall Panels are made ?

Design your artwork and decide where you want to have sound spots. Number them according to numbers in DiscoveryLINK using the ‘wall panel’ profile.
Open DiscoveryLINK, and allocate mp3 files to the numbered sound spots. When ready, click ‘Upload’ and the compiled file will automatically be loaded into the DiscoveryPEN.
Send us the high resolution pdf with a rough copy indicating where each numbered sound spot is to be positioned.
We will print out on durable, tear-resistant polypropylene sheet. Cost indications for a 1500 cm by 75 cm talking wall poster with up to 30 sound spots would be £45.00 each.
The same DiscoveryPEN will read all sound enabled media : leaflets,  badges, medallions, wall panels, outdoor platforms.

"The pilot project has been so successful that the pen will be extended to more galleries and collection."

Paul Sullivan - Museum Access and Inclusion Officer, Bristol

"The audio was great. Very easy to follow and find sites and I am directionally challenged. Excellent guide for all ages. It was very easy to use. I wear hearing aids and I could hear it very clearly. Thankyou for a very interesting tour"
