I had my first UR today about the change to the expansion of "FM" in Texas. The person didn't seem to be disturbed only confused. :)

This morning Waze was pronouncing I-35E N as I-35 eeee ennn. It has always gotten the "north" right before today. Something is broken.

Remember you can put E, S, W or N inside single quote marks and then the Waze app says the letter and not the expansion. That is 'E' for example. It is not the perfect solution, but it does work.

taddison1 wrote:A street near me, called "Ira E Woods" was/is being pronounced "Ira East Woods". The "E" is a middle initial, not a direction, so it needs to say "eee" instead of "East".

I looked at the spreadsheet, and it seems to suggest that adding a period after the E would cause it to say "eee", but then there's an accompanying note that says "n/a See East" which seemed contradictory.

Regardless, I recently added the the period, but last time I drove there it still said "East". Should this have worked? Do I just need to clear my tts cache and try again? If it makes a difference, I'm on IOS, not Android.


If you put single quote marks around the E like this 'E' then the TTS works. N, S, E and W work the same way.

The French phrase "La Salle" is being pronounced as "La Sale" when it should be either the Americanized "La Sal" (as in the first part of Sally) or the french pronunciation which is more like "La Saul" (the name). I wasn't able to test it, but LaSalle is also an alternate spelling and might be pronounced incorrectly as well.

Here, "County" is being pronounced as "Coun tay" when it should be pronounced as "Coun tee"

It means we have diagnosed the issue and the fix but are waiting for the backlog to clear for that type of issue before submitting new ones. Most pronunciation issues get sent to the vendor for fixing, so we send a batch, wait for results before sending more.
