Can you specify which lane is closed (and how many)? i.e. When the construction sign says "Right Two Lanes Closed", can you say "Closed Lane Right Two"?

I was testing by reporting "Heat Wave" since it's over 102 degrees. Although it repeated what I was reporting correctly, it put "Tornado" on the map popup. Sorry everyone. :?

Used to be able to change the preferences file but last time I tried it didn't work. It expects an American accent, so is a bit useless over here atm.

Do you know if there is there any way to enable this in the UK?

More annoyingly for me, waze pauses the music for the beep of the voice prompt, but then allows it to play whilst it wants me to talk to is useless for me.
