Maybe you’ve taken the time to explore waze and you’ve noticed that although we provide turn-by-turn directions to most destinations in the US, we haven’t currently enabled the capability to provide these directions via vocal prompts. We’re working to include this in the coming version, but in the meantime, we started thinking about what voices we’ll want to use, once the time comes.
Of course, like you, probably, we’re not big fans of the standard GPS voices you commonly hear, and decided that we’d want to do something a little different. And then it dawned on us: we realized that since the best parts of waze are 100% user-generated, we should roll with that idea and turn to our users, their friends and the wider community to find the voice of waze.
So now we’re busy putting together a voice competition and will be starting to spread the word about it over the coming weeks. Things are just in the works right now, but in a little while we’ll be ready to tell you more. Stay tuned to the blog here for more information as we have it…
