The QR Code with a Voice

The advanced QR Consortium in Japan have launched their VoiceQR website. VoiceQR is a way of encrypting a small amount of voice or music into a QR Code. Sound is in AMR format, a compressed audio format developed by Ericsson and used by many mobile phones for voice recordings such as MMS messages. Currently limited to two seconds of audio and available on only seven mobile handsets it will be interesting to see how consumers react to the new technology.

  1. Hi,

    I just set up a similar web app that generates qrcode for synthesized voice messages: http://qrvoice.net
    You type a message up to 99 characters then hit the button to generate the qrcode image for the synthesized voice message, with that image you can share in any media your voice message.

    Have fun!

  2. Marcel, how about something more simple, like QR code that contain a short jingle that can be played on smartphones?
