histrion wrote:I frequently drive on a "Dr Martin Luther King Jr Blvd." Unfortunately, instead of pronouncing this as "Doctor Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard," Waze pronounces it as "Drive Martin Luther King Jay-Arr Boulevard." Which is amusing , but given how common MLK street names are in the US, it seems like the sort of thing that should be fixed. Changing the street name to "Doctor Martin Luther King Junior Blvd" would presumably work, but would be unsightly to look at.
Is there any way in the map editor to specify the pronunciation of a name? Or would it be better to make the pronunciation algorithm smarter?
It's not just Dr and Jr, it's whole pronunciations in places. The city of Reading, PA is pronounced the same as Redding, CA, not as if you are reading a book. Yet Waze always tells me to take US-222 to Reading [a book]. There needs to be a way to independently adjust the pronunciation versus the display text.
