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.

Problem with Airpark Dr in Redding, CA - it sounds like Airpok Dr in the App. You can also hear it said incorrectly in WME.
