The first example of what I have done, shows the translation of hieroglyphs from pictures of the wall painting on which the text is seen.
The translations are also SPOKEN now!
The picture that will load if you click this link, is the same as the one on the right, but is at much higher resolution, so it may take a while to be displayed.
Please be patient, and I hope you find the result worth waiting for.
To see this in action click this link below, or the picture on the right.

TOMB of Seti I 3D VIRTUAL REALITY MODEL
I have been creating a computer model of the tomb of the Egyptian pharaoh, Seti I in the Valley of the Kings, for about 10 years.
This is why I have called my website Seti Site.
I plan soon to put my model of the tomb on the internet for others to see.
This is a photo of the right-hand wall of the burial chamber of Seti I that I took about 10 years ago. It gives an idea of the wonderful wall paintings in this tomb.
!!!! TALKING TOMBS !!!
I am very pleased to say that I have thought of a way to include the HieroShowHear method in my tomb model.
This means that as visitors "walk" through the tomb, they will be able to hear the translated hieroglyphic texts & if they wish, see the written translation.
I will add to this description of my virtual reality model of Seti I's tomb soon, and hope you find it of interest

Do you Have Any Tomb Painting Photo's?
If anyone who has photo's of Egyptian tomb paintings would like to see their photo's shown in this way, I would be very pleased to do this for them.
The easiest way, if you are able to use a scanner to make a BMP , JPEG or GIF file of the photo is to send it to me as an email attachement.
If you have the translation of the hieroglyphs in the picture and send that to me as well, it will take me less time to create the HieroShow or HieroShowHear! for it.
I would be very glad to get any pictures you have of the tomb of Seti I, and as I have the translation of some of the hieroglyphic texts already, then I will be able to do those very quickly.
I will also be very pleased to put these pictures in my computer model of the tomb of Seti I, if you will allow me to. This will help me to complete more of the tomb, and you will be able to see them in the tomb when I put it on the web.

This is the right hand side of the head end of the sarcophagus of Seti I. By clicking the link below the blue drawing, you will see and hear the translation of part of the hieroglyphs at the top, right hand part of the sarcophagus. I have placed the blue drawing of the hieroglyphs over that part of the sarcophagus to try to show how it looked when the original blue inlay was still in the inscriptions.
If you click on these words, you will find a very interesting report on the sarcophagus of Seti I and the Soane Museum in London, that was in the Al-Ahram newspaper.
I would be very pleased to get emails from anybody who would like to say anything about what I have done so far and my plans for the future

This is the Chapel of Thotmosis III which is in the Egyptian Museum, Cairo. Very soon the translation of the hieroglyphs will be written and spoken, in both Arabic and English.
