Audio Tour of Fire exhibition

I am experimenting with different ways of putting on line an audio tour for our new exhibition, "Where There's Smoke: Living with Fire."  Here, I've made to links to .mp3 files on my Google Sites location:

We are pondering different delivery methods, for visually impaired visitors to the exhibition, or anyone else who would prefer to listen to the audio tracks.  One option is signing out ipods, with the tracks loaded, from the museum front desk.  We could also put QR codes on the wall, allowing those with smart phones to link to the audio segments on line. We are in time hoping to have a cell phone tour, so that visitors simply will be able to phone in to a specified number, and punch in the designated segment.
