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

May need to use a single or double quote around the street name so that Waze understands that it's not an abbreviation that needs to be expanded.

"N" St
or
'N' St

We just need to decide on a standard to use and ensure the TTS acts as we expect.

For example: in centro/downtown Tijuana Mexico, some streets are named with a letter. On the physical street signs, the letter is in double quotes.

I don't know. I'll have to set a route to somewhere in downtown Tijuana and find out how it's pronounced in the TTS.

Here it is, in case you're interested:

I would recommend that you contact Waze support regarding this. I don't know that upas should be an abbreviation for underpass. They should be able to fix this in the English TTS.

Also, thanks for your contributions to the map in San Diego.

I thought we decided a while back to just spell out "Calle" as it's only a single character different.


Yes, I was involved in that thread and that was the recommendation for the USA. This is what we have done throughout San Diego. Although the abbreviation from the base map import in San Diego was Cll vs. Clle.

The recommendation for Spanish speaking countries that are using the Spanish TTS was to use C. But I don't know if that is actually parsed correctly.
