Meet Tessa!

Tessa is one of the many languages and accents that the new MOTOTRBO Text to Speech feature, available in release 2.4, can support. Text to speech allows the radio read out text messages; channel names and some menu selections using a built-in voice synthesizer.

Text to speech is a CfS feature and therefore requires a licence (HKVN4285A) and activation in the radio. Text To Speech and Voice Announcement are mutually exclusive.

Tessa, for example, has a hard time pronouncing "Witwatersrand", even though she (it) has a South African accent, so there is a small custom dictionary (really a table) which can help the radio get around this and other tongue-twisters - so Witwatersrand would be correctly pronounced as Vitvatersrunt.
