They are there on my computer, but I had a firewall blocking the upload. Should be there now.

I am moving this out of the US Regional Coordinators Resources thread and into the TTS thread where it belongs.

GG: Woops.... how did I do that?

That's what it should do. The naming standard for FM has a <space> not a hyphen. There has been quite a ruckus about this.

This should be removed. It's not a good abbreviation and there are "Nat" streets in the US.

Yes, as noted, this was fixed weeks ago as noted earlier in this thread. Clearing your TTS cache is needed.

I tried 16 times to download the TTS for this segment and got empty files every time. Not sure what's going on here. I know with 100% I heard two different "Pkwy N"-ending segments pronounced with "north" so this is ... confusing/concerning. The TTS system appears to be pretty unstable right now.

Finally got it: https://www.dropbox.com/s/sxefwon98h5s2 ... _1.mp3.mp3

Question is, why isn't the app getting this same thing?

Interesting idea, but really the wrong thread to post something like this. Please in the Waze app forum, and not part of an existing thread which is unrelated to your idea.

That looks like a malformed segment name. Shouldn't it be either "to I-295 S / St. Augustine" or "to I-295 / S St. Augustine"?

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.
