Next station here, next station there, attention please! We would have come across many different MRT announcements broadcasted over the public announcement system.

But have you ever wondered who is voicing the MRT announcements, or whether it is all just a robot and a really human-sounding text-to-speech computer software?

On Tuesday (Sep 20), TikTok user @sharifa.amalia uploaded a video showcasing herself being part of the recording of two 10-second announcements, now used across the train network.

The video included the caption, when “you’re taking the MRT, and you hear your own voice”.

Voice-over was recorded few years ago, back in 2018

In the subsequent scene of the video, Ms Amalia featured how she got engaged for the gig four years ago in 2018.

It involves her in conversation with her liaison to record Malay language public announcement messages, seemingly held in the following week from their exchange.

Following that, she showcased of presumably herself in the recording studio with a printed script of MRT announcements which she will be voicing over.

The printed script also includes other types of announcements, as well as a Mandarin version of the similar text given.
