Note that although the database is similar, it is not customized with their automotive product, or with Waze customizations.
Interactive TTS Demo: http://www.nuance.com/vocalizer5/flash/index.html
The sister product that Waze appears to use, is Nuance's "Vocalizer for Automotive" (no demo found), that has a preconfigured database customized for automotive use, and includes their Vocalizer Studio, which allows for a customization like several people in the various threads here about TTS have talked about; "it also allows customized text processing and the creation of user dictionaries for exception pronunciations."
The Nuance Language Portfolio for their Automotive Services, for the US English in the Americas, shows Samantha and Tom which Waze uses and Lisa who is not available in Waze. Check it out for other voices.

FM-Farm to Market
RM-Ranch to Market
PR-Park Road (this may be used inside parks throughout the country, but Texas names them for roads going to a park or through a national/state park).
Most people ....

DonJ2 wrote:What does TTS say when streets use the following formats (for example)?
SW 41st Way (as in 40 first, I'm guessing TTS will say "Forty One Street Way"?)
SW 42nd Way (as in 40 second)
SW 43rd Way (as in 40 third, I'm guessing TTS will say "Forty Three Road Way"?)
SW 44th Way (as in 40 fourth)
I've seen this format used in the basemaps. I could not find these abbreviations in the spreadsheet, so I'm wondering what TTS will do?
