It's most likely because the word "To" on the ramp is capitalized, which doesn't conform to the standard.

I'm going to send a PM to the editor in question and make sure this is just a typo and not widespread.

Where exactly did this occur?

They're usually just regular streets, in this context.


Okay, I thought you were talking about a suffix. This makes sense.

Is this really a street type? Post an example.

I already sent you a PM but since this is an issue of potential public interest I will follow up on the forum too. I can confirm that while the TTS for CONST ZN worked previously, it no longer does. I am not sure how to send the TTS file. I will search around the wiki, etc. but if you can point me in the right direction, that would be helpful. I need very basic step-by-step instructions...unfortunately. :oops:
Thanks,
LL (and yes, I have a Droid 4)


I've never heard CONST ZN work properly on the iPhone, but I don't think I had ever driven into one prior to a few months ago when some major construction started locally and I started using the labeling and then deliberately driving it to keep up with the street closures.

A second month??? We're almost 3/4 of the way through the second month!

No. Cord was an automobile produced in Indiana back in the 1930s.

Did you send it to support? They should be able to do an exception for that.

Should be pretty simple to fix if the N and the 3 don't have a space between them. (do they?)

Send a request to support via nanorep on the support page.

We have a "Summer St" in town. TTS correctly pronounces it "summer street". Off of that street is a court, named "Summer St Ct". TTS pronounces it as "summer saint court". Wait, what?



We have a "State Street Dr", which is an extension of State St in a different neighborhood. But the "Street" is always spelled out in "State Street Dr". I think there are other streets in that neighborhood that are the same way.
