Did you understand the correct evacuation information using SoundUD? n = 110 “SoundUD” (Sound Universal Design) is a platform and technology developed and advocated by the Company to convey information equally to everyone across language and hearing barriers. Enables information to be displayed on ICT devices such as smartphones using voice as the starting point without going through the Internet. For example, the translation information can be displayed in text in conjunction with the announcement, or useful information can be displayed in conjunction with the background music. Another feature is that it supports not only voice, but also information provision in conjunction with GPS and Bluetooth (R). With the “SoundUD” compatible spot, if you have one compatible application, you can easily access various information required in that space. In October 2017, we launched the “SoundUD Promotion Consortium” with our company as the secretariat, and we are currently working with 294 companies and organizations to promote the cross-industry of transportation, facilities, tourism and media. “SoundUD Promotion Consortium” Official Website: https://soundud.org/ [Image 5
