Voice Annunciator

Supplier: Jacques Future Proof Communications

Manages prerecorded announcement audio files which can be directed to a tag or group of tags in a system.


The Voice Annunciator is a digital message store for the Jacques VoIP System - 650 Series. It manages pre-recorded announcement audio files that can be directed to any tag or group of tags in an intercom or public address system.

The benefits and applications of this product are:
• Announcements can be stored
• Announcements can be recorded from any intercom station, from PC workstations or from professionally sound recordings. No proprietary tools are required and only standard audio file formats are used. This simplifies system commissioning and maintenance
• Online updates to announcements. In Long Line Public Address (LLPA) staff can record short term or ad-hoc announcements for special events or disrupted service notifications as required. These custom announcements can be shared only for stations along a particular route or line on a busway or railway, or for all operator positions

• With Jacques Event Controller software announcements can be triggered from low-level
inputs allowing easy integration with PLC or CCTV systems
