A brief comparison of the two voices used in the railway station PA announcements in Sergiyev Posad now and then. First, a human female voice recorded in 2010 – we may not consider it perfect but it still personal. Then starts a modern-day tannoy, a computer-generated voice that gradulally replaces the human announcers. This change – one of the biggest in decades – went almost unnoticed by the public.
Recorded May 17th 2010 / September 14th 2011
