I might be able to give you a whole geographical area tomorrow when I return to Inglewood
(I was constantly getting 'W' instead of west, but that was before I cleared the cache)

I tested both of these now specifically, and they both said it correctly.

"Keep right to Ming Avenue West"

"Turn left to ess are ninety nine north"

Either there is a problem with your client, or somehow your TTS is not being cleared.
When you search for cc@tts, are you seeing a confirmation popup which says your TTS cache has been cleared?
If yes, and after that you still hear this problem, please submit debug logs so we can investigate further. (Put your app in debug mode before the drive so it can capture the events.)

Instructions for sending debug logs
(You don't have to open a support ticket, we will handle it, just let us know after you sent the logs.)
We need to know exactly what time you heard the wrong prompt, so they can find it in your logs.

It's North not 'N'

West not 'W'

etc. (haven't hit any E or S streets lately)

This happens on ALL streets that I come across with N & W......



I've already cleared the TTS cache...........

What is happening? Can you give PL to any specific streets with the error?

Will watch, but I haven't noted the problem now. I did clear the cache.

"Madre" is pronounced "Mad-reh" rather than "Mod-ray"

Object on road is already on the to-do list, I think madre is to, if not it will be now :D

called "Dr. Martin Luther King Jr St S"

I see that Jr probably needs a period, but why would Dr. say drive?

They were turning right to go north on that segment, and they said it was the default voice.

Can you confirm this has been fixed now please?

IAW, "N Main St" is pronounced alled "N" Main Street", not "North Main Street".

Sorry if it's posted elsewhere and I've just missed it.

Can you give us a permalink to the exact segment causing this failure?

I'm not on the road now, so no exact PL that I could post with confidence. But EVERY instance of driving I've done, everywhere, since JANE was defaulted to my phone app, has been that way. No exceptions that I have noted, here in Arkansas.

EDIT: Wait! I did navigate down SE and SW 14th today, in Bentonville. It announced SW 14th as such, not "southwest". Hope that helps.

PesachZ wrote:The double letter direction (SW) we are looking into now, but the single letter Cardinal directions have all been working for us in testing and on my drives. Perhaps you need to clear your local tts cache and see it it is still happening. Search on you app as if searching for a destination. Type in cc@tts and press search. If it still is happening after that please send us the exact location where it happens so we can try to reproduce it.

The double cardinals (NE, NW, SE, SW) should all be working properly now. Please clear your TTS cache (search for cc@tts) and try it out again. If the issue persists please advise us. Thanks

https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=usa&lo ... st=4385513

When I test it (only in certain contexts) the ho get swallowed so flag-hole instead sounds like flag-ole with a short o. I'll forward it to the devs, the engine may need to be updated.
