...NOAA Weather Radio for Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands
gets a voice improvement...

The National Weather Service in San Juan will replace the current
NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards Console Replacement System(CRS) to
the new Broadcast Message Handler(BMH) platform on September 12. The
new BMH incorporates a new voice generation program, so NOAA Weather
Radio will sound slightly different after the transition occurs.
National Weather Service personnel have modified the automated voice
to pronounce most words correctly, but there may still be a few
words that require adjustment. If you hear mispronunciations or find
other problems with the new broadcast, please contact us at the
National Weather Service in San Juan at 787-253-4586 or by
electronic mail at
