Is it "Penn Street" or "Penn State" you are trying to do?
Are you sure "Penn" comes out as "Pennsylvania"? That style abbreviation isn't on the TTS test list for state names at all... I guess I'll have to add "Conn" to see if it comes out "Connecticut", although I'd think it either comes out "Conn" or "Connector"...

I was not entirely clear on your other suggestions however. Can you clarify which abbreviations are currently in use? I'll add them to the test list. I will also add any suggestions that you may not have actually seen on signs, but feel are likely being used.

On printed maps, the street is written as UTSA Blvd. The Waze map has it as Utsa Blvd. It is supposed to be pronounced as 'you tea ess aaa' sounding out each letter. TTS tries to say the name as a word - "ootsa Blvd". The exit signs for this street have it as 'UTSA Blvd / University of Texas at San Antonio', and TTS announces "ootsa Blvd / University of Texas at San Antonio". I see in this thread that to be pronounced as letters, they should be written as lower case surrounded by single quotes. That would probably look awkward -- 'u' 't' 's' 'a' -- and unmanageable if you have to write it very many times. How should this be handled to get the right announcement?
