I have confirmed (as others) that Intl is pronounced as "Intel". So, despite what the road signs say, should we expand Intl as International (for airports)?

"Commons" should be spelled out.


Got it. Thanks

Has this abbreviation been deprecated since the update to Jane (and the original abbreviation wiki page) or is it being worked on for an update?

Cmn and Cmns are both not supported by Jane. However they are both on a list we are actively checking to determine if we should add support for them. We should have a decision shortly, once we finish testing and researching the list.

Any resolution on this one? ("Cmns" is pronounced "C M N S")

Trying to solve a UR but I have heard the same instructions myself when driving to this road.

PL is above.

What it should sound like is "Base" (above) and what it does sound like is "Bass" (posted above).

The voice instructions recite the "to Dobbins Air Reserve" as above in the PL, only it says "Bass" vice "Base".
Thanks

I'm not sure if I just list words here that are misspoken in the app or if I put them on a list somewhere. Please let me know the right protocol.

The waze app pronounces "Base" like "Bass" (as in the fish).

Example, "Dobbins Air Reserve Base" is currently pronounced "Dobbins Air Reserve Bass"

Mispronunciation of "Rowlett"

Using Jane / US English

Says: "roh-LET"

Should be: "ROW-let" or "row-LET" (first syllable rhymes with "cow")

Example segment (the entire street is lengthy): https://www.waze.com/en-US/editor/?env= ... s=49754283

I am uncertain if spelling or standard abbreviations is taught at Street Sign School. :lol:

Normally, Trail would be Trl, Terrace would be Ter

With all this conflicts, why are we doing this? Wouldn't it be better to simply ask Waze to
implement a TTS field, so we can actually follow the goal of making it simple to the user: matching the BGS?
