ReadSpeaker Provides TTS Announcements Along Japan's Tokaido Shinkansen Rail Lines
Central Japan Railway Company has implemented ReadSpeaker's text-to-speech software for announcements about its train approaches, arrivals, and departures at platforms and concourses along its Tokaido Shinkansen, one of Japan's busiest and most popular bullet train lines.
Using speechMaker Desktop, ReadSpeaker's artificial intelligence voice authoring tool, the railway operator can generate text-to-speech travel announcements automatically.
This function has been researched and developed based on technology proposed by the Yamagishi Laboratory of the National Institute of Informatics in Japan. This technology provides clear voice sound in noisy environments.
