TextSpeak today introduced TTS-EM-CE, the industry’s first cellular enabled text to speech amplifier. This new addition to the earBridge™ family transfers SMS emergency cellular text messages directly to voice announcements on speakers and paging systems.
Simply send an SMS message to the pre-assigned telephone number and the earBridge amplifier speaks the text.
Schools, commercial facilities, administrators, dispatchers and first responders can gain instant communication to their audience in seconds, from anywhere. As a first deployment, earBridge offers a simple, powerful, ready-to-go Mass Notification solution. As an enhancement to large existing systems, earBridge can be added as a new “cell phone” to a distribution list, and announce audio over any existing paging system. Benefits include deployment simplicity, effectiveness and access for institutions who are challenged to find affordable mass notification solutions.
For the first time, wide-area mass notifications can reach beyond registered mobile phones with a single earBridge SMS to voice solution added to a paging system. The amplifier can also resend texted data to another network and 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.
