I got two queries: 1. Abbrevation pronunciation for Indian streets on Waze App:
Many streets in India have some abbrevations that the Waze App doesn't pronunce correctly.
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."
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. 2. Regarding Naming conventions on Major Highways:
According to the India Wiki http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/How_ ... Convention
, every major/minor national/state highways are to be named "from Major town to Major town".
If the highway is already split into two-way streets, should each street be named according to the direction it is going?
For Ex. Street going from Pune to Satara be named as "Pune - Satara Hwy (SH 84)" and street going from Satara to Pune (next to the one described above) be named as "Satara - Pune Hwy (SH 84)"? or should they both be named as "Pune - Satara Hwy (SH 84)"?
In the first case the incidence report will show exactly in which direction the traffic is jammed/moving, while in the second case, we only know that there is a jam but in which direction is not much clear.
