A new way to include sound into a National Geographic article.
Not since the Churchill/Space/Whales Sound Sheets has the National Geographic Society been able to incorporate sound into a National Geographic article. The article in question is entitled "Songs to Soothe", written by Hannah Reyes Morales. This twenty-six-page article appears on page 82 of the December 2020 National Geographic.
The article, called "The Language of Lullabies" on the spine and "The World's Lullabies" in the table of contents, contains six embedded side-bars containing, among other things six QR codes that can be scanned with a smartphone's camera. These codes will load youtube videos of the selected lullabies. The selections are as follows:
1) Amys lullaby from the Philippines (Page 88).
2) A Syrian refugee's lullaby from Turkey (Page 90).
3) A 4,000-year-old lullaby from Syria (Page 92).
4) Patience's lullaby from Liberia (Page 94).
5) A Mongolian lullaby (Page 100).
6) The Hallett family's lullaby from the U. S. (Page 105).
I don't recall any other time the Society used QR codes for this purpose. If they have, please let me know.
