When visiting museums and heritage sites, blind people or those with certain visual impairments face significant challenges. The information for this kind of visitor is not accessible on some of these sites, and the text of the visual aids is in small print. Staff may not be adequately equipped to treat blind and partially sighted people, and may not know how to assist them. This is a sad truth in many circumstances, but not all. Interacting with interactive platforms frequently necessitates strong vision, and the museum may not provide any opportunities for these people to touch exhibits or hear aural information.
Plastic artists frequently seek to make a statement about their work. They frequently need to explain something so that the general audience knows what they’re trying to say. Especially in abstract art, which is often misunderstood by the general public.
Also, for old people is very difficult to read the tiny scripts which is sometimes under the paint.
That is why, in collaboration with artists, many institutions have begun to capture short audio pieces that are constantly replicated when artificial intelligence detects that people are standing near a picture. This is done so that people understand exactly what they want to be portrayed as.
For a lot of artists, recording a speech in some languages can be an important problem. they will feel very exposed if they have to record themselves speaking languages they have never studied.
For that, they can use a text to speech to simplify the task.
One of them is Woord, which is very easy to use and in a few seconds they have the audio file available to be used. It is beneficial for them because it has a large number of languages that can be spoken.
The files can be listened to as many times as the user wants. Although they can even be downloaded in MP3 format. Woord can be used on Windows and Mac OS X.
What is that?
Woord converts text to speech thanks to artificial intelligence algorithms and the voices are totally realistic. It is a Saas software (Software as a service) where users can pay a monthly or annual subscription and access all the extra benefits they have.
The subscription can be paid with debit or credit cards. Also by Pay Pal. It can be canceled at any time of the month by the user. And in this way accesses an unlimited amount of characters to be converted to voice files.
On the other hand, Woord allows the user to select the speed at which they want the audio to play, if it is faster or slower. Also if the voice is female, male or neutral. And if you want to communicate something to one of the smallest members of the family, there are also voices of children and adolescents.
