Outline

From announcements at airports, transport facilities, and shopping centers, to guides at tourist spots, shows and parades at theme parks, and emergency announcements, our cities are full of sound-based information. However, this information is incomprehensible to people who do not understand Japanese, and difficult to convey to the hearing impaired and elderly people whose hearing is failing. “Omotenashi Guide” is intended to “design sound to provide universal understanding,” using digital signage and users’ smartphones to deliver information to users in language they can understand.
