"St" is properly saying "street" in all positions in my testing.
"St." is properly saying "saint" in all positions in my testing.

There still could be anomalies around/after other custom abbreviations.

This is a cached street name. NE was fixed quite a while ago.


I am still getting the Nebraska pronunciation as of this morning. I cleared the cache before I left the house (Application Manager --> Waze --> Clear Cache). Is there something else I need to do?

As noted above by bgodette, clearing tts cache is done by navigating to cc@tts (case sensitive).

I've verified that today, the fix is in place for "N". At least one test case run so far, "I-5 BUS N" (fictitious street) works correctly and is voiced "north" instead of "enn."

Pkwy and Expy abbreviations with N after are also now working just fine. Here are three tests:

Expressway Exit
I-5 BUS N
Parkway N

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.
