I have a customer that wants the capability to push a button at a work cell and announce a message over a radio system.
Edit 1: I was able to get Ignition to send commands to a 3rd party program espeak and my computer read the text through the speakers. So one possible solution is identifying a radio that can announce a message over audio. After contacting a radio supplier they claim I might be missing some certifications and cause the FCC to “get angry”. I’m not sure if that is a true statement but it’s probably a good idea to investigate further.
