St at the end is now saying Saint. Will look into this at my end as I didn't name it and it might have a dot.

OK its all St are now saying Saint. Wtf guys? The Street Paul's Street I could live with as Saint is only some roads, but now every Street is Saint, seriously sort it out and revert all recent changes to the UK TTS. Or better yet, give one of us access to the rules on Vocalizer and we can do it in a few minutes!

Using Daniel UK. Not tried the female one it sounds rubbish but I think you may be right. Question is, why has someone at Waze again messed around with the TTS settings? No one asked for this change and AFAIK the St at the end being said as Street would apply to the US as well, so if you guys aren't affected, I would surmise that you are indeed correct that voice translations/abbreviations are voice specific and not global, although there will be global settings.

Just Exit 70, then A or B where it splits? That's what we do here.

For the love of god please do NOT change how cardinals currently work. It's all well and good talking about changing things, but remember the US isn't the only country that will see any changes Waze make to the TTS.
Besides, English comes from here ;-p

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?
