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

Cord St near Middle River, MD is pronounced as "County Road" in TTS.
Reporter on July 31, 2014
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).

Could you provide a PL example? There could be an issue related to other text in the Ramp name.

I believe I fixed them all already

I was just doing some testing, thanks though. I only mentioned it since it didn't look like it had been confirmed in the list.


Try "CR-C.T." to force it tp pronounce the letters as we have done that for other letters that we would like pronounced.

I think (hope) that Nebraska's abbreviation was reverted to "Northeast".

Totally caught me off guard.

What were you expecting it to say?

I was expecting - county road see tee.

Try "CR-C T" it should give you the results you want.

I have a request for the big list. It would be really nice to have the first 8 rows frozen so you always know what column you're looking at. If you don't look at it often, it can be really daunting and confusing when you don't have the columns memorized. (or move rows 6-8 to the top and freeze them there if it takes up too much space on smaller screens)
