Test of Text-to-Speech (TTS) Abbreviations in Waze Clients

Postby kentsmith9 » Fri Aug 03, 2012 11:21 pm

Cord is what I will be wrapping around my neck if we go a second month with no map updates in NA.

A second month??? We're almost 3/4 of the way through the second month!

I think it's pronouncing "(E)" as "Eee" again. -.-

Really? That'd be nice. I've been changing many to 'e' (and 'n', 'w' or 's') as that was the only option which worked. Where did you hear/see this?

I have a street in Hartford named "Elliott St E" (just like the road sign says) (Permalink)that is pronounced "eee", but the directions to get on "I-84 E" works properly and says "East" (various locations).

Some days I report to work on "Elliott St E", so I hear it all the time... It's not a major road, so I don't consider this a high priority, but have thought of changing it to "E Elliott St" and seeing what happens...

Actually, sorry, it was a segment named "to Hwy 406 (S)" that was saying "Ess", which never used to have that problem. I'll try and drive it today to make sure I wasn't losing my mind. These days I usually have the sound off because I find it too overbearing.

There have been situations were Waze has cached the TTS audio files for frequently used streets/ramps. Users had to manually delete these files to get the effects of new TTS rules. I don't remember the details, but just wanted to point that out if you see slightly different pronunciation in different cases. It could be the case or it could be cached data.

Entering cc@tts into waze's search will clear the tts cache.
