Let us guide you at the historical island of Alcatraz near San Francisco, USA.

This guide covers 19 of the most important historical structures on Alcatraz Island. It offers a full description of every building including photos of how the buildings used to look in the past and markings on the map shows where the structures are placed.

Using TTS (text to speak) your smartphone will act as an audio guide and will read the texts out to you loud, as you visit the different buildings. The voice used is the default iPhone speaker voice which is already installed on your device. All you need to do is to press “Play” at the button of a selected text, and the chosen text will be read out to you.
