The FalaComigo Project combines the most modern Information and Communication
Technology with simple, objective speech and raises awareness to safeguard heritage.
This National Strategic Reference Framework (QREN)-funded partnership initiative has
brought together the University, Corporate and Heritage Management Sectors.

Using the Palace of Monserrate as a reference, multimedia products were created which
integrate interactive virtual characters with speech recognition and synthesis,
incorporated into modern support equipment with attractive, ergonomic lines specially
designed to harmoniously blend into museum spaces.
