Based in Westport, Connecticut, TextSpeak designs and produces human sounding embedded text to speech (TTS) ADA compliant voice solutions for transportation systems, banking, industrial, security, educational campuses, healthcare facilities, public spaces, military and mass emergency notification systems.
Founded in 1992 TextSpeak OEM Module and Board solutions are currently deployed in thousands of locations worldwide including the Paris Transit system, New York City subways, LA Transit, Lawrence Livermore Labs & Ford Motor Proving Grounds.
With TextSpeak Devices we added ‘smart-amp’ high-definition 25 watt power technology, Cellular and Ethernet I/O, ultra-low power modes, remote management and more.
Our new TextSpeak NOTIFY! system is mass notification industry’s first “out-of-box” solution. It has been designed to provide simple and cost-effective notification for a wide range of applications, from small buildings and spaces, to larger installations that integrate with existing security systems.
In 2018 we extended our wireless connectivity to supplement our event driven M2M cellular and the NOTIFY! family of IoT alerting products. Our transit deployments expanded to L.A. and the street level bus stops in Manhattan. General announcement systems now include alerting at government buildings in Washington, campus ‘active shooter’ notifications and expansion of our help/assistance systems. Now in 2019 we’ve delivered Notify! to protect 1000’s, been awarded a US Patent for our Mass Notification over IoT and released new Cellular products. Stay tuned for more!
