Delhi University's app for deaf to enjoy heritage tours


A group of Delhi University students have developed a mobile app to help the hearing-impaired enjoy tours of historical monuments and heritage sites in the city.

The app has its own sign interpreter, who gives relevant information.

The app is called Sign My Tour and it gives all the basic information to people who cannot hear a tour guide and find it hard to read words.

The app is on Android at present and has three heritage sites listed. These are the Qutub Minar, Red Fort, and Humayun's Tomb. There are options for both short and long tours.

The short tour option is 12-15 minutes long and includes details about the monument and its history. The long tour is over 30 minutes long and provides more details about the place and its history.

There are plans to include 50 more monuments by the end of 2017.
