(TTS) Text to Speech
Text to Speech (TTS) will soon be a requirement for TV stations to meet the mandate from the FCC. (TTS) files are posted to a folder then converted to Audio Engineering Society (AES) standards. Software is available to make this conversion using a sound card and/or an audio mixer.
(TTS) has been on BTi's radar for two years. We first demoed it at NAB 2013. Since then, we have explored several ways to integrate the speech output to play directly into an embedded stream.
