Paper Abstract

This work concerns a study on the integration of a laser system with a speech synthesis facility. The speech synthesis system uses a random access memory (RAM) and electrical contacts (NO and/or NC), controlled by an electronic circuit provided with a microprocessor, in order to take off the `spoken' information corresponding to the actual failure. Hence the laser system is able to `speak' to the operator and to keep him informed on the process conditions giving him step by step simple ON and OFF instructions (replacing the operator instruction manual) and keeping him informed about the actual state of the technological plants and giving him `the spoken messages' for maintenance with scheduled expiry (replacing the maintenance instruction manual). In other words, the future `speaking laser system' will be able to make a complete auto-diagnosis and to report in real-time the results to the operator.
