RC Solution Co., Ltd., of Shinjuku, Tokyo (CEO: Akira Kuriyama) has as of today released both iOS and Android versions of the Emergency Earthquake Alarm ‘Yurekuru Call’ app, offering voice warning announcements, available to Premium Service users only.
There were many requests previously from the visually-impaired community for earthquake-use voice warning, leading to the systems update. By selecting ‘Voice’ option, when an earthquake occurs and after the Alarm Warning is sounded, voice warning announcements are made. The announcements are given in Japanese and English, announcing for example ‘Seismic intensity is X. Protect your head!’
Currently it is a guidance function with machine voice, but in the future we plan to add voice by voice actor (Kazuhiko Inoue and Kanaimika) to make it easier to hear.
