There are only so many combinations you can use before it affects other combinations. If single quotes work, just use that. Double quotes are bigger text wise.
Still waiting on Street and Saint working over here.

Because people keep requesting things across the pond and elsewhere without anyone thinking about the consequences for everyone else. I keep saying it but there needs to be a proper requesting system and a structure in place, and testing by Waze on the TTS side.
What I really want to see is the ability for separate countries to have their own TTS rules which would sort all this out completely, and have designated testers and implementers from each country to have direct access, or at least to work VERY closely with HQ so things can be changed easily.

Are dashes - being said as pauses? Recently it sounds like they're not...

If that is the case, what has changed and why?

Didn't realise this thread was in a/the US subforum.
No worries I'll discuss this with the UK team.

In The Netherlands, N roads are pronounced correctly, so this should be possible (we do write those as Nxxx, so without a space).

As TTS abbreviations are language dependant, I guess this one belongs in the US subforum indeed.

Well, if they implement a filter for #tts, maybe it is better to implement a dedicated tts input field.

Request to add (does not work currently)

C - Calle - The abbreviation would be the first word in the street name

We'll need to add a bunch of Spanish abbreviations since there are loads of streets in many states where the street name is in Spanish.

Pso - Paseo - confirmed working in TTS
Av - Avenue - confirmed working in TTS
