Yes please. It's used extensively throughout TX, much like RM. FM with no dash though. If you add a dash it changes it to Federation of Micronesia. THAT we do know. :)

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.

Chickasha

Jane pronounces as "Chick-cash-uh"

Should be "Chick-a-shay" ('tʃɪk.ə.ʃeɪ)

On another topic from Pennsylvania. Could we get Phila to say Philadelphia? I Googled it and it doesn't seem to be a common usage anywhere else.

I can put in the request, but for uniformity it will probably end up with all the abbreviations having a period. So it will probably be "Phila." = "Philadelphia"
