Phonetic Street Name Option

Postby Java_King » Sun Feb 03, 2013 3:43 am

Many times the street names are pronounced incorrectly. It would be nice if there was an option for the user to enter their own phonetic spelling to override certain names, such as how Siri allows with a contact name. Or, to give the map editors the ability to add this change in the maps.

FWIW, a quick search for "phonetic" turns up several threads that make this suggestion, going back to 2011 when Waze first introduced TTS.
