of the iBus announcements.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of

confirm TfL does hold the information you require.

 

A CD containing the iBus announcements has been sent to you in the post.

 

Please find attached a list of the announcements. It should be noted that
the iBus announcements are recorded as fragments. As a result, some
announcements would not feature in full as the full announcement would
just be made up of two or more fragments that have already been recorded.

How long roughly will it take for it to get to my house?

Dear Mr Grafham

Thank you for your e-mail. I do not know how long it will take the disc to
reach your home. I expect it may take a couple of days, however due to the
volume of mail the Post Office have to process during the Christmas period
it may take longer. If you have not received it by the end of next week
please let me know and I will arrange for another one to be sent out.

 

Yours sincerely

Dear FOI,
Thanks very much. Received CD. Although it doesn't have the recording "To" on there but it doesn't matter.

Yours sincerely,

Michael Grafham

Dear FOI,
The CD doesn't contain the recordings " University Hospital" and "Dingwall Road/East Station".

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr Grafham

 

Our Ref:         FOI-1555-1314

 

As advised in my original response, the iBus announcements are recorded as
fragments. As a result, some announcements would not feature in full as
the full announcement would just be made up of two or more fragments that
have already been recorded. All parts of the “ University Hospital"
and "Dingwall Road/East Station” are used in other announcements,
and so the announcement for these stops can be made up from these.

 

Yours sincerely

Dear FOI,
Thank you. Another recording that is not on the CD is 'Thornton Heath Pond'. I know there is more than one recording of this stop because the way the announcer says it is different.

Yours sincerely,

Michael Grafham

FOI, Transport for London

Dear Mr Grafham

 

Our Ref:         FOI-1555-1314

 

There are four audio announcements with the words ‘Thornton Heath Pond’
included in them. I have listened to the announcements and there are two
different ways in which this announcement is said.

 

Please note that you have received the most current version of the
recordings that we hold.

Dear FOI,
Thanks but are there any other recordings of just Thornton Heath Pond because in the recording of "64 to Thornton Heath Pond", the announcer says it differently to what you have provided?

Yours sincerely,

Michael Grafham

Dear FOI,
Also, the recording for "N64" is not on the CD.

Yours sincerely,

Michael Grafham
