I think it's pronouncing "(E)" as "Eee" again. -.-

Really? That'd be nice. I've been changing many to 'e' (and 'n', 'w' or 's') as that was the only option which worked. Where did you hear/see this?


Actually, sorry, it was a segment named "to Hwy 406 (S)" that was saying "Ess", which never used to have that problem. I'll try and drive it today to make sure I wasn't losing my mind. These days I usually have the sound off because I find it too overbearing.

Do you mean "Rural Route" or "Rural Road" or something else?

Note we currently have "RR" in the list to test for "Rail Road".

Regional Road

Canada Post offers no opinion, so I've been using Siderd in hopes it comes out okay. Bing uses Sdrd.

Is this really a street type? Post an example.

They're usually just regular streets, in this context.

In Gilroy, CA there is an issue with the pronunciation of Leavesley Rd.

Current and incorrect pronunciation : Lev-el-li

Correct pronunciation should be : Lev-es-LY

MWY = Motorway, yes aware you can use Mtwy but it does not meet standard in Australia
CCT = Circuit

Both the above don't work.
