Produced by Alexia Attwood

Story audio

RailCorp acknowledges that muffled and incomprehensible announcements are a problem commuters regularly face on Sydney trains. So today Minister for Transport Gladys Berejiklian announced that rail staff will attend radio school to work to improve their voice, enunciation, and microphone techniques.
