This key is used to specify whether the departures board on a public_transport=platform or a public_transport=station supports a speech output that can be requested by pressing a button. It is assumed that the speech output is in the local language. If it is available in another or additional language, a language suffix can be used.

How to map

Add the departures_board:speech_output=* key to the object (e.g. the platform) that also has the departures_board=* key. For departures boards mapped as individual nodes, speech_output=* should be used instead.


Common mistakes

Incorrect Tagging Explanation/Better Tagging
Mapped as single node with: The lack of any other tags makes clear that this object is supposed to represent the departures board itself, so only speech_output=yes should be used.
At a train station in Germany. The language suffix "de" is unnecessary for a station in germany, because speech output in German is assumed the default. Use departures_board:speech_output=yes instead.
departures_board:speech_output=* should not be used without departures_board=*.
