Re: Test of Text-to-Speech (TTS) Abbreviations in Waze Clien

OK, the big list says that BUS says "Business" in TTS. Would it be safe to make the following change in the Road names wiki.

From: US-90 Business S for U.S. Highway 90 Business, Southbound
To: US-90 BUS S for U.S. Highway 90 Business, Southbound

Or keep it as is?

Reading GizmoGuy411's post, it indicates everything has been tested. The list on the first post in this thread has not been updated, hence the request to see the current list.

Thanks,
Kayos

Can you please provide a link to the "Big List" the last time I looked at a list, Pt for point didn't work (verified about a month ago) and Divers for Diversion does not work and was not on the list.

Thanks,
Kayos

The text to voice says "county road street"


I'm aware that "Co" (and "CR") is pronounced "county", and "rd" as "road", however I didn't know it would parce groups of letters in the middle of a word (not separated by a space).


Thank you. Good observation.

I think you actually discovered a previous existing abbreviation that we had not yet discovered!

Currently the following are documented in the "Big List" to exist or we have had Waze add them:

"Co" says "co" as in the word "cooperate"
"Cor" says "Corner"
"CR" says "County Road"
and now you have found that
"Cord" also says "County Road"

This will be added to the "Big List" and we will also add it the submission list to Waze for removal as an abbreviation.

Please check the Big List before making suggestions to add an abbreviation.

As an example, "Rev." already says "Reverend" and I just re-tested it to confirm it.

Please report the Permalink for any specific instances where the TTS results are different that what was expected.

Adding it to the suggestion list on your behalf with a period to avoid possible conflict.
