Isn't that because it's French? (i.e. Nord, Sud, Est, Ouest = North, South, East, West)
Wouldn't it just be easier to use N, S, E, W as the cardinal (compass) directions in Waze? And then you can change the language in the app to either Engilsh (and get North, South, East, West) or French (and get Nord, Sud, Est, Ouest) - I think, I'm not about to change my Waze to French as I may never get it back to English.
No, he's saying that Waze pronounces roads like "Autoroute 20 Est" as "Autoroute Twenty Estate" instead of the preferred "Autoroute Vingt Est".
Unfortunately, the North America server (USA+Canada) only has English TTS at the moment, and until all the Anglo pronunciations are correct, I doubt they'll be able to work on the other languages.
