Voices for the T train

Recommended Posts

Ive always wondered who is going to do the voice for the (T) train when it comes out, is it a male or still the traditional female, I wonder if there is a preview sound file out there.

They have 2nd Avenue announcements for the (Q) already... I wouldn't be surprised if the (T) has already been recorded...

No matter who it is, everybody is going to say it's Diane Thompson

 

Maybe cuz Catherine Cowdery or whoever the hell she is does too many voices for services

(B)(D)(E)(G)(J)(L)(M)(N)(Q)(R)(Z) and by 2010 (V) and (W)

You realize that Dianne only did the voices for the (1)(2)(3) and possibly the (S)? Yet she gets credited with almost everything.

By the time the T actually exists as more than a fantasy project or idle talk, the Bloomberg Gang, like many of us here, will long be dead.

I bet the (T) won't even happen because of how much money has already been poured into this project ever since 1929. When the 3rd Avenue El was closed down it was a huge mistake that continues to plague us to this day. Sure when the (Q) runs to 96th Street or possibly 125th street (if funding becomes available) it could elevate the problems with overcrowding on the Lexington Ave line. Other then that I don't see the (T) running any time in this century and I think funding for the SAS will be eliminated before Phase III can even be built. That's all I have to say on this.

Another impatient man............I think it will be completed in this century and our lifetime.

Now how was he being impatient.....? He was just giving a statement, mixed with history............... And how do you know if this will happen in our lifetime? As others say, who the heck knows if the (T) will even come in our lifetime. I don't even give a sh9t about the (T) NOR the announcements. Just finish up Phase I of the project, to cut some slack to the Lex Line, which hell is all the time. As long as at LEAST up to 96th Street is done, we can see improvements, and even cut traffic down on 2nd Ave...

To be honest, I didn't even know there was a difference between the R142 and R160 announcements before a year ago. All I knew is a man would say stand clear and the transfers, and a woman would say the stop and next stop.

They said the same thing during the 20th Century. We are now in the 21st and only the first phase is to be completed in four years. Maybe just maybe the second phase may start construction assuming funding could be available.

Maybe nobody will do the (T) announcements. Maybe by then the announcements will be computer generated.

 

 

Wow I was actually thinking about this. And I have to say I agree myself. Computer generated announcements are much easier to make than recorded ones, and like FINDs over strip maps, are better for GOs.

Passengers may complain about the robotic voices being hard to understand... they may continue with recorded voices.

Despite the thing that they are much easier, I don't want computer generated voices for the T train.
