Okay. I can unequivocally state that Po'olau produces "Pool-lau". That's with an apostrophe. I'll change it to the alt-key ‘ and wait.

BUT, will searches require the correct punctuation to return the correct road? In other words, does the end user have to put in that correct diacritical to get the street they are looking for?

A critical consideration (no pun intended). I would imagine that the plain-vanilla place names, minus the diacriticals, would need to be there as an alt.

And, BTW, that's Alt-right bracket. Still struggling to find a way to enter the kahako via the keyboard.

Search for the Unicode alt+xxxx (numbers). A another cheat way is to use insert symbol in Microsoft word. Would be hilarious if Jane pronounced Hawaiian words correctly with the diacriticals

Yes. That's how I got the ‘. I just typed in "alt-key" as a generic alt+{key}

Has there been any feedback on tts while adding diacriticals? I haven't run into any roads with them on yet to see.

Doing some tests on diacritials
using the official glyph for okina (UnicodeU+02BB) on Makapu'u Ave causes the Jane TTS in WME to say Makapoo-you but using the apostrophe makes it say it correctly with a glottal stop between the U
but I don't know if it applies to in app
and it throws a highlight from validator for incorrectly abbreviated street name
