Audio Commentary Now Available in 6 Different Languages

Uluru Segway Tours now has an Audio Guide Available

Uluru Segway Tours releases gps triggered audio guide in Chinese, Japanese, Italian, French, German, Spanish.

 

From July 12th 2018 guests booking an Uluru Segway Tour around the base of Uluru can choose to have their tour commentary in different languages. Whilst Segway guides are English speaking, the company has now released an audio tour in 6 different languages. The Languages include – Chinese, Japanese, Italian, French, German, and Spanish.

The audio automatically triggers via GPS at various locations as they glide around the base of Uluru on a Segway. This service is an inclusive part of the tour and as such all guests need to do is request at the time of their booking.

Uluru Segway Tours have ensured that non-English speaking guests won’t miss out on getting quality information about the culture, environment and history of the area. Currently many international guests visiting Uluru miss out because there is limited international interpretative information. Topics like culture and geology are hard to understand in foreign languages. Now international guests no longer have to miss out.

 

The project

Uluru Segway Tours has been working on the audio project for 18 months. From tomorrow the audio devices will be available to the public. The company has worked with the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and Traditional Owners in order to develop the script. Six different translators and a sound technician were used to develop a rich soundscape to bring Uluru to life.

A project of this nature is a first in the Northern Territory. Speaking about the release of the upcoming audio commentary, company Director, Mark Swindells said “ This is really exciting. To our knowledge no-one else in the territory and maybe even Australia is using GPS triggering technology to conduct audio touring in such a variety of languages. Through having this information available in such a readily accessible manner guests from all over the world irrespective of language can now experience a rich and informative tour around Uluru.”
