Abstract

Museums are seeking different ways to attract and engage audiences. Digital stories in various forms have been utilized as one approach to increase audience experience. This paper presents how to bring audio stories as a part of museum's activities by developing a modular audio story platform. Most of the functionality is included in Android applications, which allow visitors to attach stories with emotions to artifacts, share stories with other visitors and enrich existing stories with sounds. All the audio files, linking of the artifacts and related audio files are managed by audio digital asset management system. Our platform supports curated audio stories, but the main emphasis is in the visitors' audio stories. We differentiate from the other digital storytelling systems by attaching emotions onto the visitor stories, and combining the soundscapes and audio stories as visitor modified audio stories.
