This segment has Sterl getting spelled out. It should be pronounced like Steril.

The "Eye of" issue does not seem to be present any longer. Must have been a hiccup with the vendor TTS for a couple weeks.

Col without a period does work in WME. It will be added to the list to test to make sure it behaves with other conditions.

I would think if it was a client issue, it wouldn't say it in WME. This isn't the only "eye of" issue in the area, other editors have the same issue with other ramps.

Heading south on Charlestown Rd and turning left on this ramp is giving the "eye of" 65 issue at the end of the name again. Can hear it in the WME TTS test as well as in the client.

Int might work for international?
IA is also an abbreviation for international airport.

Monticello Ave in Williamsburg, VA should be pronounced "Montichello" like the name of the musical instrument.

This street in Charlottesville, VA should also be pronounced the same way as above.

To be honest, anywhere in the United States where this name is used it should be pronounced that way. This is the proper pronunciation that can be found with a simple Google search. However, local preference outside of these two areas varies, so at this time just these two examples need to be changed.

Newhall of Newhall St is being mispronounced as
"noo hal"
, and with a long pause between the syllables as if it is two separate words. Should be like
noo-hawl

Permalink

Oddly enough, "Newhall" is pronounced correctly in Newhall Dr here.

Thanks.
