We are waiting for some tests done by one of the Waze Champs. We are not changing anything.
As for the rest, you might have to read last few posts.

I have a few instances as well:

to Garden State Pkwy N wasn't correct. It read as "enn" not as "North"
Also, it's reading "Dr" as Doctor.

Is "Dr" being pronounced as "Doctor" wide spread or isolated?

Can you send me some examples?

I want to know if there is any correlation to the occurrence of "Sulgrave Dr" being pronounced as "Sulgrave Doctor" that we have found before in multiple locations.


I noticed it when I visited an address. Do you need the address? I can take a look at it if it does elsewhere.

Ok... "Dr" as "doctor" happened 1 particular address so far. I've did some test around town and it worked fine ("Dr" as "Drive").

Parkway issue is new to me. Happened going north. I don't think it happens all the time.

Just to be clear, issues with "N" not returning "North" have been reported a few times recently. I haven't heard any issues with "Pkwy" not returning "Parkway" (the one reported issue was actually just a typo, "Pwky").


I didn't mean to confuse, I was referring to "N" after the parkway.

Would anybody want to ßeta test new voice for US?

There is a new voice called: "Jane"

My initial impressions so far positive. It seems a bit faster than the default voice and seem more clearer. Would be useful those long directions on Hwy's in rather short segments.

Still there are issues with it. She read "Redman Ter" as Redmander. Also, few times it drag the word and read a little longer.
