Multilingual Broadcasting is Now Available in Japanese and English

Sanyo Electric Railway is one of the main railway companies in Western Japan, operating trains in Kobe and Himeji.

Onboard Train Announcements are Now Available in Multiple Languages

Previously, train conductors’ announcements were made only in Japanese, but now conductors can use audio files created by ReadSpeaker TTS (text-to-speech) software via their tablet to optimize in-train broadcasting in Japanese and English. It is now possible to make normal and emergency announcements in multiple languages, thus improving service to passengers from overseas.

Onboard announcements not only in Japanese but also in foreign languages using ReadSpeaker’s text-to-speech technology have been available on the Sanyo Electric Railway Main Line since January 2021.
