Turnkey emergency information compliance, straight from the source.
NewsTicker Voicer streamlines compliance with the FCC mandate to provide a secondary audio stream of emergency information presented visually. As NewsTicker already manages your emergency information as breaking news crawls, school closings and severe weather, NewsTicker Voicer works transparently to perform the required audio insertion.
Meeting compliant mandates is seamless to your producers. They simply enter breaking news as they normally do, and send the playlist to air. Behind the scenes, NewsTicker will duck your program audio, play an aural alert tone in your desired primary audio channels on your Freedom, then restore program audio. This tone, played over your embedded audio stream, advises the visually impaired that emergency information is being displayed. NewsTicker will then duck the audio on your SAP channel and speak the text using a natural sounding voice. Once the text has completed, it will restore the SAP audio automatically.
