TextSpeak Releases Text-to-Speech Amplifer at ISC West
The company says it is the first wide-area mass notification system that reaches beyond registered mobile phones.
WESTPORT, Conn. — TextSpeak introduced TTS-EM-CE, a cellular enabled text-to-speech amplifier, at ISC West. This new addition to the earBridge family is said to transfer SMS emergency cellular text messages directly to endpoint speakers and paging systems.
An SMS message sent to a pre-assigned telephone number prompts the earBridge amplifier to speak the text. The system supports 25 languages and instantly converts text and data to a high definition, natural sounding voice.
According to TextSpeak, this is the first time wide-area mass notifications can reach beyond registered mobile phones. A single earBridge amplifier can announce a standard text message, sent from anywhere, directly to a paging system. The amplifier can also resend texted data to another network and/or display the announcement on an overhead LED message sign. User definable security levels ensure that only messages from authorized personnel, automated systems and/or emergency responders may generate announcements, according to the company.
The TTS-EM-CE also supports the standard features of the earBridge amplifier series:
- High definition 25 W audio paging amplifier
- Ambient noise detection for automatic level control
- Speed dictionary and real-time language changing
- Capability to mix live text-to-speech and pre-recorded Wave files
