If there are enough "Branch" roads out there I guess I'll keep quiet, but it's a bit weird that we follow the USPS and not the MUTCD for this, since Waze is more sort of a "traffic control device" in a way. The MUTCD standard is "Br" for "Bridge" – but then, the MUTCD doesn't include several of the less-common street name suffixes.

I think this is the only instance of an MUTCD abbreviation that is expanded to something different in Waze.

Thanks. I'll fix the name and test the br to see if they say bridge or branch.

Here is the TTS test saying the ramp name correctly: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/143 ... e_test.mp3

If you had cleared TTS cache already and restarted the app, then something is amiss.

I did not, I only did the manual map tile refresh. I have just done the TTS though. Other ones where this was wrong are ok now though. This was my first one I ran into since the updates. I'll report back if it does it again, thanks!

Did you clear TTS cache first? Every instance of "enn" we've found since the fix was deployed has been pronounced correctly after cache clearing and testing.
