Place-based Audio Storytelling with Detour

From the Interactive Media & Games Seminar Series; Luisa Beck & Steve Rubin from Detour.com take you behind the scenes of the audio storytelling app Detour. Detour uses your phone to turn audio tours into hour-long stories that unfold as you walk. With authentic narrators and film-quality sound design and scoring, taking a Detour is like walking around inside a movie. Storytellers create Detours using software called Descript. This tool links word processing, mapping, and audio editing features to help a user create and and edit their script, plot their tour’s route, and position audio and images throughout the tour.
