We've been harping on that since the day TTS came out. Waze says they have it on their plan to add this ability to allow better pronunciation.

Phonetic Entry on map and reading on client

Postby timbucks » Tue Jan 29, 2013 1:33 pm

It would be nice if there was a possibility to add a phonetic name to streets/cities where the TTS clearly pronounces it wrong and then for the client to read it out if it exists.

Everytime I get directions onto Watling Street it pronounces it Wahtling rather than Whatling (I would do it in IPA but I don't know if the forum will render it correctly!)

As a further example in Milton Keynes there are these three districts - Loughton, Broughton and Woughton [on the Green] - the first ou is pronounced as in loud, in the second it's pronounced as in raw, and in the third it's pronounced as in wuff...
