1. Abbrevation pronunciation for Indian streets on Waze App:
Many streets in India have some abbrevations that the Waze App doesn't pronunce correctly.
Such as
a. "Dr." is pronunced as "Drive" (Which is right according to the TTS wiki), however in India its actually referred to as "Doctor", as in "Dr. Ambedkar Rd" or "Dr. Kelkar. Rd."


In this instance, ideal naming should be "Doctor Ambedkar Rd"

pmnarsapur wrote:b. Few of the roads in Pune (haven't checked in other places) have "Marg" at their end, kindof meaning a path. However, Waze app pronunces this as "Marginal" or something of that sort. "Marg" is nowhere mentioned in the TTS Wiki as well.

My question is what should be the ideal way of naming the streets in such cases? Should they be corrected according to the way Waze pronunces it and keep the original name in "Alternate name" fields? Or is there any other way.


As long as we don't have a dedicated Hindi TTS, this cannot be corrected. Moreover, as Hindi is not the only language spoken in India, we have a profusion of names all across the country from Marg in the North to Salai and Theru in the South, to name a few. The best solution is to replace "Marg" with "St."

pmnarsapur wrote:For Ex. Street going from Pune to Satara be named as "Pune - Satara Hwy (SH 84)" and street going from Satara to Pune be named as "Satara - Pune Hwy (SH 84)"?


What you have stated is the correct method Puneet. Moreover, please use MH-SH-84, while naming.

To summarize, Waze faces and will face, a number of challenges, which are unique to India. It is our task to overcome these challenges, and to adapt Waze in the best possible manner.

This is because these landmarks have been imported from Google when the base maps got changed. I would advise you not to delete them. Instead, try and find out these venues and put in the details. And if it's a park, Mark it as such.

Well, if someone is doing this on purpose, tell me the name of the user and send me a permalink of a venue he has done this to. Again, do not delete the landmarks. Change the details and save them. If you like, Let me know once you've done them so I can lock the changes. Do you know how to send a permalink?

Sure. In the editor, go to the location you are referring to. Then, go to the bottom right hand corner of the screen and you'll see a tiny image if a chain link. Click it. The screen will refresh. Then, just go to the address bar of your browser and copy the link and past it to this forum.

Can you check the genuinity of map edits done by user name aaravi, level 3 editor, Where ever this user has found green color on map, marked as park, plantation, mango garden , garden, Am sick of seeing multiple links on Bangalore, if one or two, i can report the permalink, but not dozens, i think you guys can check all the edits i guess, if not i shall work on reporting links .

Am not against any one's points or level, but at the same time i wish to make Waze a better community with out fake entries just for the sake of level up and points.
