New York's MTA Selects Loquendo for Newest Train Cars
MTA Long Island Rail Road and MTA Metro-North Railroad selected Loquendo's embedded text-to-speech technology. The Loquendo software will be integrated into the Pocatec communication system onboard the new M-7 fleet supplied by Bombardier Transportation. This will allow text messages issued from the Railroads remote facilities to be broadcast through the audio and visual information system on board railcars.
The Loquendo text-to-speech synthesis engine uses the "Unit Selection" concatenative technique on a wide range of sound samples. With its continuing new voices production, Loquendo offers features such as: portability, natural timbre, intonation, and pronunciation accuracy.
