On April 27th this ramp to the I-87 S was pronounced "Keep left to eye 87 South, Maj Deegan Expressway, Manhattan, Queens". The Maj was not expanded into Major.

In the meantime should the name be changed to spell out 'parkway' or 'north'?

AlanOfTheBerg wrote:A couple thoughts which may already be addressed: 1) saying the full name of a state for the two letter abbreviation is different than saying the appropriate phrase for "XY-###" where XY is the state abbreviation (or just M for michigan). The key is defining the abbreviation with and without the hyphen. I think we should all agree, and it won't cause too much angst, that state routes should use a hyphen to help with abbreviation rule; 2) as noted above and later "BUS" only fails if it begins or ends a segment name; 3) "N" failing to say "north" happens when it is preceded by a custom abbreviation.

Is "Pkwy" a custom abbreviation? I just experienced the second Pkwy which had the entrance ramp spoken as "... Parkway enn". The first was Hutchinson River Pkwy N, and today Bronx River Pkwy N.
If it is should we be doing anything to fix it in the segment names?

My thought exactly. I defined the rule similarly to how N=north is defined, which is different than all the other cardinals, which may also explain why @txemt has noted that is seems "xyz Pkwy N" pronounces "enn" rather than "north." I will be checking on this.

Just to another to the list, travelling up onto the Hutchinson River Pkwy N from the Whitestone Brg produced a "Hutcinson River Parkway enn" Verbal instruction on March 24th. Mentioned in the UR there.

Hi. Can we get the following special character in it? I know you have it already surrounded by single quotes, but what about w/o the quotes? What about with a street name?

Character = ½
Example: 30th ½ St
Example: 31st ½ St

Thanks, and keep up the good work.

I had asked this to Orit and she said:
We need to create a rule to override  it in the server at this time it didn't work and our developer is trying to fix it

This is regarding the BUS issue.

I don't know these editors can be added or not. I know that Orit enabled the voice for them in their clients. I already confirmed with one of the editors that they can see the and test the new voice "US Jane".
Any idea if they can be added?

You should be able to test the voice correct?
I'll check the other issue and let you know.
