You've probably seen QR codes on windows, bus shelters, and train platforms to help you get access to info or apps.
You might not know this, but we generate QR codes for every single episode on the site.
So if you wanted to create a simple audio tour, or have audio comments about art pieces in a gallery, or have books introduced through audio, you can. Many people already have - check out how Sequoyah use them to help kids power through reading challenges:
Here's how to find your QR code.
- Click on the title of your episode from your dashboard to open it's detail page.
- Find the "More" section on the right hand side of the page
- You'll see a link to the QR code page
You'll then see a page with a code at the centre. You'll have options to make it smaller, or larger, or print it off if you need to.
Scanning one of these codes with an app will send the user straight to the right page on our site, and let them begin playing the content immediately.
All you (or your visitors) need is a simple app that happens to have a QR scanner. These include:
