TextSpeak has been selected to help riders in Paris. Over 2,000 TextSpeak TTS-EM-LP’s deployed citywide at bus stops for spoken arrival and departure information in French. The TTS-EM-LP is a high definition, world–language low power, best in class, Text to Speech module with human sounding speech synthesis in a scalable low power interface. Seamless integration, simple operation. Real-time voice announcements generated directly to speakers from text in RS-232 serial data.
JCDecaux’s subsidiary SOPACT was awarded the contract by the Paris City Council’s tender department to manufacture and maintain the bus shelters, which will have the French “Origine France Garantie” label.
