Abstract

Voice Alarm systems (VA) are an essential part of subsurface
underground station emergency and evacuation systems.
Their main purpose is to assist in the management of
emergency situations and evacuation procedures by providing
key verbal instructions to the occupants. However, these lifecritical systems will be ineffective and even counter-productive if the speech messages broadcast are unintelligible.
