I will bring FM to the team for review

FM with no dash after it.

That's because it's not supported as far as i can tell. Have you tested it in the app, does it work?
If it's not supported do we need to add it?

I have created a new wiki page for the updated TTS. On this new page you will find a list of recommended abbreviations to be used in english countries, primarily the USA. Most of the items will work in any english speaking country. Items specific to the US are marked with a √ mark.

There is also an active sheet showing all the pronunciation fixes on the to do list, and their current status. If you previously reported a pronunciation problem here and don't see it on the to do list for pronunciation fixes, please reply here so I can be sure to add it in.

The syntax to fix this is the segment name should be "St. Augustine" The period is used to distinguish between Saint and Street.

We are having a problem where S West Shore Ave in tampa is being pronounced Southwest Shore Ave with no space between the South and the West. We are considering removing the cardinal from the primary name, and setting it only as an alt. But if we dont put SW it should give a pause between South & West.
