At least we know now that single or double quotes is the answer.
I will continue this topic at the TTS forum as Jason suggested.

Thanks for your tests Joey :)


The last post I found in the TTS thread seemed to indicate that the 'S' won't always work...what I'm unclear about is if that's on a street name, or just on a ramp name.

Gizmo's testing is very comprehensive and should give you every possible outcome.


When S is between either single or double quotes, Waze TTS pronounces is as a letter not the direction.

In terms of my voice test, Ave S. Still says South.

A-B says ayybee
A - B says ayy to bee

Going to test the second toll test today


Even after you put it in quotes " " (Ave S)?


Single and double quotes say ess, but a period without quotes still says South.

I see someone already changed Ave S in Brooklyn. I guess we'll just fix it when we find out what the TTS chumps say.

In another words, you would normally hear once or twice from the client to turn right or left etc. If you weren't paying attention and wanted to hear again, you can click on a button and the client will repeat the instructions again.

If somehow this is exist, please let me know.


not a bad idea. I don't think it exists.

However, Waze is known to talk a LOT. It usually give 3 voice instructions for a turn that will occur over 1 mile away and the last 2 include the name of the street.

Interesting. Are you sure it was "North ess" and not "Northess"?

lol... beating me to the punch.

Question, is the first one "enn ess" or "enness" where the voice is blurring the words together...

Also, how do we want to handle the Brooklyn letter avenues now? Should we speak to a few of the champs if all of the avenues should be changed to '?' or "?"?

thanks!

What is weird is that when navigation thru a toll is the only option, it will navigate through it. So why have this behavior when you are starting on a toll segment.

171) Connect parking lot roads to highway and allow turns:
https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=7&lat ... 9,70910735

172) Allow turn to parking lot road...
https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=7&lat ... s=67705610

173) Connect segment to ramp and allow turn:
https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=8&lat ... s=70474804


FYI - Maps updated with the toll segments on my block:

A) When leaving my block to work, Waze would not navigate on my block. The purple wasn't even showing. It just started at the end of my block, even though it saw me on my block. Weird action.

B) When navigating back home from work, it did not route my around the corner. It DID route my up the block the same way.

Now I'll split up the long segment and we'll see.

I didn't test the voice yet.

CBenson wrote:But the problem, like at the Linclon Tunne,l is that waze is finding a route without any segments marked as toll. As there is only a toll eastbound through the tunnel, waze will route eastward over the non-toll westbound lanes. As there will always be at least one toll segment for the proper eastbound routes, waze will continue to route eastward over the westbound lanes if you have avoid toll roads selected.


Ahh... I see your problem now. Interesting. Wow. Anyway, I think the consensus though is that it would be best if we can minimize this occurrence.
