I can confirm that FM roads are pronounced as 'Farm to Market'. I have not come across any RM roads or PR roads while driving. I have seen PR roads in the map editor, though.

Causeway Blvd is pronounced like "Causewuh"

But if I change Blvd to St or Ave, then it pronounces then edging "way" correct

Mispronunciation of "Lakeline Blvd"
Permalink

Voice: English (US) - Jane
Says: lake-lenn
Should be: lake-line

Interestingly, nearby "S Lakeline Blvd" and N Lakeline Blvd are pronounced correctly, so the presence of an N/S designator seems to make a difference.

Map show the name correctly. It is just text to speech

Do you have a PL to issue to help track it down? Or maybe a city and state?

Is that a road name? Can you edit your post to add a PL?

FS-xxx was submitted a while ago and we are just waiting for it to be processed as a voiced replacement. You are okay to use it.

You probably could have combined those into one post since it is all the same road name. In most cases where a word or road name is very commonly pronounced a certain way, it is impossible to replace for a single road. Those TTS replacements are done for the whole country.

I am not able to get Jane to reproduce. Can you tell us more specifically where it says it and how you are set up? Is it turning left/right from Monroe or one of the side streets? Does it occur only from phone audio or from bluetooth?
