Yes, it was that exact segment. It was a left turn. Maybe connection issues on my phone? I'll get this instruction again in the field and will see what happens.

I always hear it with the "ee," maybe that's the only way my ears will hear it.

I believe that's destination TTS, which does not use the same code as seg name TTS.

If so and if you are an app beta tester please add this as an example to Bug-1999 in Centercode.
Thanks.

Been using Kate (UK) for voice nav. When I get on Hwy 75 in Tulsa to head home from work, she calls the town of Okmulgee "Oak-mull-jee."

It should put the emphasis on the" mull", but /primarily/ (and most annoyingly) pronounce "gee" with a hard G instead of a soft J.

Diana Ave, is being pronounced with a short 'i'... it should be a long 'i' - "eye"

In Tucson, AZ, they use Stravenue (a cross between Street & Avenue)...a lot. Editors have abbreviated it to Stra, and Jane reads it as it is written. It is the USPS recommended abbreviation, which can be found here: https://pe.usps.com/text/pub28/28apc_002.htm.

Here is a Wikipedia link for it as well: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stravenue.

Sample of area with several "Stra" streets: https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=usa&lon=-110.92142&lat=32.19772&s=121616435&zoom=6.

Would like to see an abbreviation standard and include it into Jane voice.

Thanks.

Limon, CO is pronounced "Liemun" (with a long "i" like "die") rather than "Lihmun" as Waze currently pronounces it.

Brg is pronounced correctly as 'bridge' when in the course of normal instructions, but is pronounced on my client as B-R-G when it occurs in the little summary spoken prior to starting a route. e.g. "Let's get started! Let's take Burrard B-R-G". Then later, "turn left on Burrard Bridge".

Any thing new on this FM error. We are getting a lot of UR's around the Houston area of this.
