Know more about Dasara online
By P M Raghunandan
DH News Service Mysore:


Bored of reading through voluminous literature about Mysore Dasara? Well, here is a way out to save you from the trouble — just click online and listen to a guided tour to Nada Habba 2006. In yet another IT initiative, the Dasara Tourism Committee has now introduced ‘talking website’, wherein information on any of the major tourist attractions in Mysore can be heard online.

What one needs to do is log on to the Committee’s website — www.mysoretourism.org — and select any place of interest on the home page. An animated lady will first greet and subsequently start narrating the importance of the place.


It may be the Mysore Palace or picturesque Brindavan Gardens or Chamundi Hills, or Mysore Zoo, information about almost all important places will be delivered through voice mode.


To avail this option, one needs to have an internet connection and a multi-media facility. Not only about tourist places, the talking website will also guide tourists about various options available for lodging in Mysore Dasara — which is perhaps the major hurdle a tourist faces in Mysore.


By selecting the lodging option on the home page, the ‘lady’ will brief about hotels available (including luxury, budget and economy hotels) and their locations. Interestingly, Athithi option (Home Stay) is also available. Information on Home Stay facilities in Mysore during all 10-days of the festivities can be heard using this option. Besides, the website is programmed to give all other information on various Dasara events through audio mode.


Plans are also on the cards to convert the website into a dynamic interactive one. Once this is done, the animated lady on the site will answer to any queries about Mysore Dasara and related events.


The new initiative is the brainchild of a local techie Sanjay, who also runs an IT solution company Software Guru. “Our tests have shown that users will look at more pages on your website and stay for longer, if there is a friendly voice guiding them,” Sanjay pointed out.


Audio enhancement of websites is a fast developing area. Because of the huge demand for computer games, music and video, most home internet users now have a computer with speakers attached. This has opened up new and exciting ways of delivering information to potential customers, he added.
