TTS: George Washington Parkway.
Any abbreviation other than the standard N, E, W, S, St, Rd, Ave, Dr., etc., needs to include a period. For example,
Label: Dr = TTS: Drive
Label: Dr. (note the period) = TTS: doctor
Label: Geo. Wash. Pkwy = TTS: George Washington Pkwy
Rationale: "Wash" is not wholly uncommon word in street names.
I picked Geo Wash Pkwy on purpose because it's such a bad example. Trying to code the TTS for every situation like this would be a mistake. Like I said, we need a TTS override field where we can enter what is said, and still allow us to match the labels to the BGS.
