— Acapela Rachel's see it, say it, sorted announcement.

Acapela Rachel is an automated announcer on the British railway network. Unlike the other announcers however, the announcements made by Acapela Rachel are not made up of pre-recorded words and phrases. Instead, Acapela Rachel is text to speech software. Because of this, words in the announcements often end up being pronounced oddly or incorrectly, and sentences she says sound very incoherent. Although the company Acapela offer text to speech software in a variety of voices, Rachel is the only voice that is used for railway announcements.

Acapela Rachel is used at smaller Southeastern, East Midlands Trains and Arriva Trains Wales stations. Usually Arriva Trains Wales stations have announcements in both Welsh and English, Acapela Rachel though only gives announcements in English.
