Advanced Passenger Information

Upgrade transit hubs, add speech using data from visual display data

Add high quality spoken words for ITS directly from existing PID messaging, digital signs and computer display data. 

Deployments of Text to Speech at bus stops & rail platforms benefit from real-time passenger information paging announcements created directly from the text data in scrolling from LED digital signs. Passengers, both blind or with limited sight can be accommodated with upgrades for ADA and Disability Compliance

Safety is enhanced by offering analog paging notification in areas that are served solely from digital systems. Advanced systems may include local radio (LPFM) broadcasts to announce departure and arrival information, aiding passengers arriving in parking areas.

Digital Sign

Voice Annunciation Systems (VAS) – Bus & Rail Announcements on vehicles gives on-board next-stop automatic voice announcements in English, (and Spanish) of major transfer points, landmarks and safety advisories. This insures that vehicles are compliant with ADA regulations for automated audio and visual stop location information.

Voice annunciation technology enhances the travel experience for riders by keeping them informed of their current location. Train Announcement, Rail Announcement and Bus Announcement Systems automates on-board passenger bus announcements to upcoming stops, coordinated with LED signage on board the bus.


TextSpeak Embedded Text-To-Speech modules series convert ASCII text to a natural, clear voice with unlimited vocabulary. The small footprint, plug-in solution accepts wide range of input data to generate real-time speech.

Intelligent interface provides seamless speech from data, Digital Signage, Digital Signs, Marquee and Scrolling LED signs. Convert in-house, deployments of scrolling LED displays, signs and signage directly to voice for Mass notification and passenger information systems with earBridge amplifier systems for mobile and fixed applications.

Improve display emergency notifications, digital signage override, desktop alerting with text-to-speech voice annunciation over public address systems.

TTS-ENC1 Serial Amplifier

Passengers have come to expect efficient and up-to-date transit facilities. Modern transit terminals, rail, bus and marine lines strive to meet these needs. To support modernization of PIDS (Passenger Information Systems) modular Text to Speech hardware using High Definition speech offers straightforward retrofit upgrades.

TextSpeak solutions are currently deployed in thousands of locations worldwide including the Paris Transit system and New York City Subway.

Solution Transit Station

Designed from the ground up to support transportation, the TTS-EM meets the most demanding specifications.

  • Speech may be created from existing sources, such as feeds to scrolling LED digital signage, modems and low-bandwidth data links.
  • Informational alerts can be pre-programmed and started with the push of a button or launched remotely by automated systems.
  • Moving vehicles can offer dynamic next-stop announcement information from existing display signage data, or dynamic radio data.
  • Multi-lingual announcements can be easily generated, with precise accents, to speak directly to international travelers.
  • Audio messaging can be queued for sequential delivery. Real time text can be supplemented with pre-recorded messages, tones or even music.
  • Deployment is suited for parking, platforms, trams, buses, gates, rail, marine and roadway systems.
