Japanese and English announcements will be made in all stations from the Transportation Control Center

From the end of March 2020, ReadSpeaker voices will be available in English at all Keio railway stations. In the event of service cancellations or delays, Keio not only provides regular announcements on their PA system and signage at stations but also broadcasts the information in Japanese to all stations from the Transportation Control Center.

Railway Broadcasting with ReadSpeaker speechEngine SDK

Using ReadSpeaker speechEngine SDK, the company can convert text into voice in real time, instead of using a standard narrator’s recorded voice. In addition, the pronunciations of station names and other information can be customized in advance, making it possible to generate clearer and more natural sounding speech.
