Aristech’s portfolio impressed visitors at railway fair in Gdansk, Poland


The 12th TRAKO International Railway Fair is the largest and most prestigious rail industry meeting in Poland and one of the largest in Central and Eastern Europe.  The presentation of state of the art transport systems and railway infrastructure attracted 16.500 trade visitors from 28 countries.

For the first time, Aristech presented their text-to-speech (TTS) voices at this internationally renowned event. Experts from various railway related industries were eager to listen to Aristech’s custom voices created for ÖBB and widely heard in cross border trains. Questions raised included “Can we get our own custom voice? How can we ensure proper language switch in cross border trains? Which applications can be equipped with TTS?” The experts were not only impressed by the audio quality but also by the easy handling of software interfaces like the multilingual announcement generator or the TTS designer optimization tool.

Thanks to Aristech’s voice creation expertise, adding new languages to their portfolio is easy and cost effective.  With a respectable number of business leads at hand, Aristech is looking at promising perspectives in Eastern European markets.
