Activity - Pictures with Sound Search

The Notman Photographic Archives at the McCord Museum includes an on-line collection of over 80,000 photographs.

As part of the Culturall project, over 11,000 images were matched with background sounds in order to investigate the usefulness and feasibility of providing sound effect based accessible multimedia equivalents on a large scale. A customized ambient sound is create for each image by mixing background sounds appropriate to the various elements in each image.

In order to allow public access to this resource, the McCord has created a "pictures with sound search" option that lets visitors search by each of the background sounds.
