ISCVE launches New Microphone Training Guide
ISCVE, the Institute of Sound, Communications and Visual Engineers has this week launched a new guide, aimed at users of microphones and sound systems, to improve speech intelligibility for spoken messages.
Often the spoken word, in important communications i.e. safety announcement, evacuation messages, train departures is difficult to hear and understand, often due to poor technique or a lack of knowledge on the part of the microphone user.
ISCVE aims to help microphone users with the launch of its latest publication ‘A Guide for Training Microphone Users of Sound Systems and Other Communication Systems‘.
Here’s what they say;
Public address (PA) systems, sound systems for emergency purposes (SSEP) and voice alarm (VA) systems are commonly employed to transmit messages to the general public at a wide range of venues and public spaces, such as underground stations, airports, rail stations, shopping malls, sport venues and others.
Providing intelligible messages is fundamental when addressing the general public through a PA system and of paramount importance when emergency sound systems broadcast safety messages.
