Like the OP, I would prefer the ability to make the change using a voice command rather than take my eyes of the road to adjust a setting. It's safer.

I routinely find myself changing the audio settings especially since 95% of the time commuting on roads that I know. I did run across a problem yesterday where I had it set to Alerts Only but wasn't alerted to a route change and missed a time and stress saving turn.

Request:Turn off navigation prompts by voice

For a large portion of my journeys, I don't want turn by turn guidance by speech. It would be good to disable/enable audio instructions by voice - I don't really want the distraction of doing this on the screen.

Sorry, but that has not solved my question. I know about tapping the screen, and that is exactly what I do not want to do. I want to keep my eyes on the road and use voice commands to achieve the same effect. Please don't mark this as resolved because I don't think it is.

Perhaps because it is too difficult to change safely.....

This is exactly the sort of scenario I'm thinking of. Start a journey somewhere that I don't know, and where traffic may be an issue, so want voice directions. But don't want/need voice directions as I get into friendly territory, and use the back roads to get home. I have the navigation interrupting my radio over the car speakers, and I'm willing to accept the occasional annoyance of Waze interrupting an interesting conversation to give me a needed turn direction - I'm not so happy about it interrupting to tell me about a route I drive daily, or that I have almost arrived 'at home'. And more importantly, nor is the wife. ;)

You already can do this. Tap the Waze icon in the lower right of the screen, then in the upper left, tap the speaker icon

This is someone you should probably change or setup before navigation or while your vehicle is stopped. It is unlikely Waze will look to implement a voice command for this function since people don't generally change the setting mid-route or while driving.

Not necessarily, mainly because people probably either already know how to get where they are going but like to receive route information or just alerts along the way.

Thanks! -- that was not intuitive... I hate unlabeled icons. (Just spent a while trying to figure it out; and Waze's own help page for that topic doesn't seem to be working!)
