If that is the case, what has changed and why?

We are waiting for some tests done by one of the Waze Champs. We are not changing anything.
As for the rest, you might have to read last few posts.

I had a "stay left at eye four ten" today with the ramp named "I-410." There's a direction attached to that, but I can't remember if it's east or north at that point (and it's near the change over, too). There was no pause or anything.
Just wazeting my time to help you waze your route smoothly.

Why? I thought this was a thread about US abbreviations.

Sorry, I can't. I only really use dashes in routes like "I-97" "US-50" or MD-3." I've never noticed a pause with these and have not noticed a change in behavior with these. Not sure why you would expect a better answer in this thread.

Didn't realise this thread was in a/the US subforum.
No worries I'll discuss this with the UK team.

As TTS abbreviations are language dependant, I guess this one belongs in the US subforum indeed.

Sorry all, but I have been too busy lately to work on the list. I'll try to get the latest results posted once I have some time.

Hi!
We have an idea how to improve TTS pronunciation and how to deal with abbreviations. Basically we suggest to use Alt City/Street name to correctly pronounce names and/or to specify a short (abbreviated) street name.

Please support if you like the idea! ;)

Thanks!
