Does anyone know if this is all the different voices that are doing this or just certain one. I have heard this on Samantha.

It is only on the default voice that mis-pronounces "left". Elvis, Boy Band, and others I tried pronounce "left" correctly. However, when you switch voices the directions are not the same, so you give up some functionality. I have had other people listen carefully and they also hear "left" sometimes mispronounced. I'm using a new iPhone 5s.

For me this bug is now just a source of humor. I now make fun of Waze while driving: "OK Waze I will turn LET". I would consider this a Priority 1 bug because it gives users wrong information. Of all the words to mispronounce, "left" and "right" are probably the most important.

In the early 1800's sailors did not use "port" and "starboard". They used "larboard" and "starboard". And of course, had to hear what was being shouted at them from one end of the ship to the other in seas and wind. Now THAT was a bug!

I had a Turn Right when a Turn Left was displayed.
First I learned how to draw lines on a map. Now I must learn the art of Feng-ShWaze.

I have seen a few UR's refering to this problem, has anyone heard of and fixes in the works yet?

This may be a new issue because this problem went away for awhile, but I have received several URs and have seen comments on reddit.com/r/Waze about the map indicating a right turn (valid) but voicing "Turn Left". I thought it was the enunciation problem this thread initially talked about but I head it twice yesterday. I wasn't in a position to send logs at the time but I will first chance I get.

Should there be a new thread for this?

I have the same problem on both of my phones a Samsung Avant and an LG Stylo. It really sounds like the system is saying turn right when it is actually saying turn left. I am wondering when the bug will be fixed. The original post was a year ago.

This morning I heard the Jane voice say "Turn Left in 1000 feet..." but it is a right turn. The map showed the correct right turn. Moments later I heard "Turn left..." again.
