BWWG Files in Support of FEMA Request for the FCC to Lift the TTS Ban

April 1, 2012

As most of you know, FEMA has filed a Petition for Partial Reconsideration for the provision in the FCC’s Fifth Report and Order that would prohibit use of Text-To-Speech (TTS) features that are a key benefit of CAP. Eight state emergency managers have so far also asked the FCC to reconsider their TTS decision, along with some support from the EAS equipment manufacturing community.

The BWWG filed detailed ex parte support Comments today that should appear on the FCC’s Electronic Comments Filing System (ECFS) sometime on Monday, April 2.
