Is it possible to apply the same logic as St. for Saint vs St for Street? This would make it Divers for Divers and Divers. for Diversion... doctorkb may also want to have some input on what to do here.

I found a couple of TTS errors:

"to Hwy 91A N / Annacis Island" is translated as "to highway nighty one eh en" pause "annacis island"
"to Hwy 13 / 264 St / Aldergrove" is tanslated as "to highway thirteen thousand two hundred sixty four street" followed by the pause for the second slash an "aldergrove"

These are both segments starting with "to" Could this be what is causing the issue?

For the last few months (I don't know exactly how long as I don't take this route often) this exit has been voiced as "to highway ninety one eh en, annacis island". Segment name is "to Hwy 91A N / Annacis Island"

https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=usa&lo ... s=59598325

and this one as "exit eleven, highway ninety one eh en, annacis island, new westminster". Segment name is "Exit 11: Hwy 91A N / Annacis Island / New Westminster"

https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=usa&lo ... s=59586780

Do these segments need to be changed to have the N voiced as "north"?

Thanks,

Are you sure, because I could swear that it has been that way for a while. We have a ton of county roads in NW Ohio, and we have slowly been changing them to "CR xxx" as we canvas the rural areas. "CR" does get pronounced correctly as "County Road", and not to be confused with "Country Road".

+1

Wisconsin county roads have been pronounced "Coh Road" since I started using Waze 10 months ago. We've been changing them to CR-xxx though (still works with the dash)

I was doing some testing for some updates I was planning on for the WI wiki page. I named my street CR-CT and Waze said to turn on County Road Connecticut.

Totally caught me off guard.

What were you expecting it to say?

I was expecting - county road see tee.

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)

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.
