Conshohocken (Con-sho-hocken) is now pronounced Conshilstocken or something unintelligible. Used to pronounce correctly. Road with that name here.

Per a UR in Ohio, the pronunciation of Loudonville needs to be corrected. Here is a segment that has the name: https://www.waze.com/en-US/editor/?env=usa&lon=-81.94891&lat=40.79282&s=121634163&zoom=5&segments=38475688

UR:
Ll'nville is how it was pronounced. Proper is "Loud" with a w replacing the d, "Don" with emphasis on the d, and "ville"

Thanks for keeping me in the loop. I let the SCR know the TTS status.

From Abigail regarding the TTS issue:

We deployed a change to address this problem and also another one to force the client to request all of Jane's texts again (to avoid receiving a cached bad file).

If the issue is not fixed, it could be because the change to force the client to request Jane's texts again has failed. Then try clearing the cache.

If the issue remains after clearing cache - let your RC know. Abigail will need the logs.

Not exactly, but hopefully not long. We got a hold of staff and they are now working on it actively.

Hello,

Does anyone have a status on when the TTS will stop speaking gibberish?

Thanks,

Ted

I have a couple of name pronunciations for correction:
Steger Rd https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=usa&lon=-87.52798&lat=41.46841&zoom=3&segments=14663464
Currently it is pronounced "Steeger" (long e), but the preferred one would be "Stayger"
The other references I saw for Steger were all in the same area, so there should be no conflict for regional differences.

Also, in Chicago:
Paulina https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=usa&lon=-87.66535&lat=41.73118&zoom=5&segments=15118890
This is pronounced Pauleena, but the correct way should be Pul-line-uh.
I notice there may be overlap with city names in both Oregon and Louisiana, so not sure if this is regional.

'keeps saying Skelby instead of Shelby.'

I was using Jane also. Destination was somewhere in Forest City, NC. The only time the word Shelby was spoken was at the exit.

I was told this is the right place to post ... if not, let me know and I'll move it.

Encountered a strange mispronunciation with Jane.

Road is Cookstown (Cook's Town) but was pronounced cukes town (like short for 'cucumber').

Thanks!
