Re: Test of Text-to-Speech (TTS) Abbreviations in Waze Clien

Not many people are authorized to see this forum. It is titled "TTS New Voice - Testers" and currently has 34 members, 62 posts in 7 topics. It is a child of the Localization forum.

The only way I knew about the new voice, originally, was via direct email from Waze. I assume they/someone created this forum based on those who volunteered. I did not volunteer because there's enough stuff I do for Waze and I didn't need another thing to remember to test, give feedback for, which is then ignored.

I'm android and always up for helping to test anything.

As a side note, the way the current TTS says 'Henrietta' is hilarious and/or scary, take your pick.

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