You may use TripCheck 511 system’s voice recognition system to ‘speak’ your instructions into the system, just follow the prompts provided. This can speed your use of the system and make selection easier – particularly for cell phone users.
The system will also allow you to interrupt the information being presented if you want to navigate to another menu. For instance, speak ‘highway’ at any time and the system will return you to the Road Conditions by Highway menu option.
If you try to speak and the system is unable to recognize the word, or the telephone line has too much background noise, you will be given three opportunities before the system de-activates the voice prompt. Users for that call will then only be able to use the keypad to enter their choices from the menu above.
