This has been know for a while it's a bug in the engine, the vendor will have to fix.

Is it just me or does the second "Exit" in "Exit Right to Exit ##: SR-### / Main Ave / Anytown" sound like Egg-Sit? It really seems to me like they both sound different.

Can you provide a sample where this appears in segment name please?
To me it sounds like Ellis-burg


You're right, it did sound like Ellis-burg. Here's a good test segment. https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=usa&lon=-76.62241&lat=40.95494&zoom=6&segments=42802585

Is this what it should sound like?

Just to be sure I understand, is PAX an abbreviation as well, and what should it say? ( It sounds like pax to me now)
You can use "I.D." to say the letters I D


Hi, PesachZ, Thank you for clarifying "I.D." will work. "PAX" is short for Patuxent; for this location, usual abbreviation is "PAX RIV". Full name is Naval Air Station Patuxent River. I think this would work best for TTS; what do you think? "Pass & I.D. Office N.A.S. Patuxent River"

Depends on the desired result. "N.A.S." will say the letters NAS, whereas "NAS" will say Naval Air Station.
