So my turn onto Latta Road was:
from Manitou Rd Southbound
To Latta Rd Eastbound

Regarding the wiki page, I got to this forum thread from Abbreviations_and_acronyms/USA#Pronunciation_fixes. Maybe this deserves its own wiki page.

Anyways, If I do a "cc@tts" first, and pick source and destination near the offending road name, there aren't many TTS files to go through.

Yes. You can create directions using the app that travel over the desired segment. Then with Android, you can open the *.tts files with an app like ES File Explorer. Use that app's own player to open them as audio. They are stored in \waze\tts\database\. Then \Jane\ if you're using the Jane voice.

I don't think it is possible to browse such folders with iOS.

Wow, that's awesome! Should this go on the wiki page?

You'll have to search through all the files to find the right one though that way, but that method works too and is actually mentioned above in this thread a while back. You might find thousands of files in that folder though, and if you're hearing a cached file it won't be the most recent files added.

Which wiki page would you add it to, it is an advanced TTS function. We don't have a TTS page perse.

Like mih-'neh-tah

Does this sound right?


No. Regular n rather than ñ, and neh like "never". And stress on the second syllable: mih-'neh-tah

If it helps, the name is Japanese.

Sure. I'll drive that way to work this morning and send the exact segment

Is there a way to test without driving?

Through staff, yes.
