A Guide for Training Microphone Users

of Sound Systems and Other
Communication Systems

Public address (PA) systems, sound systems for emergency purposes (SSEP) and voice alarm (VA) systems are commonly employed to transmit messages to the general public at a wide range of venues and public spaces, such as underground stations, airports, rail stations, shopping malls, sport venues and others.

Intelligible Messaging

Providing intelligible messages is fundamental when addressing the general public through a PA system and of paramount importance when emergency sound systems broadcast safety messages.

Optimising the quality of the speech produced by a talker speaking into the announcement microphone is as important as good acoustics and good sound system design.
