It's the only one I noticed with a German TTS voice which is spelled char by char and not translated. It is also missing in the list in the wiki.


Blvd is on the global abbreviations page but not on the US page. It works in WME and the app with Jane, but were you using Kathi? Kathi says it wrong.

It means we have diagnosed the issue and the fix but are waiting for the backlog to clear for that type of issue before submitting new ones. Most pronunciation issues get sent to the vendor for fixing, so we send a batch, wait for results before sending more.

I have also noticed that Paoli is pronounced correctly, as well, so I can tell that progress is being made.
Yay!

As far as I am aware Pke does indeed work. I would have no problem adding it onto the abbreviation list.

The general wiki for Waze Abbreviations lists it can be abbreviated as "Pke". I have tested it and Jane seems to work for that abbreviation.

The USA Abbreviation wiki list does not mention it.

Yes I know it saves a whole skinny "i" in the app, but I have run across some places where the street naming continuity is lacking so just seeing if it can be clarified for wiki continuity. :D Thanks
