The secret in the phrasing, is to say "closed lane" and not "lane closed." When Waze reports back what it is reporting, it specifically says "reporting closed lane" and not "reporting lane closed." After listening to the phrase upon successfully getting Waze to report a lane closed, I now get a 75% success rate for reporting a closed lane.

Can you specify which lane is closed (and how many)? i.e. When the construction sign says "Right Two Lanes Closed", can you say "Closed Lane Right Two"?

I cannot get the iPhone app over bluetooth to understand either "standstill" or "hazard". I have successfully recorded standstill traffic twice, and hazard once. This is sooooooo frustrating. Also "moderate" MUST be pronounced "mah-der-ATE" instead of MAH-der-eht which is annoying as the first is usually the pronunciation of the verb and the second the adjective.

Any suggestions on how to pronounced standstill and hazard so that the app understands????

Despite "car stopped on road" being a valid ASR command, it does not work. For me.

"Car stopped on road" works in the current iOS beta correctly. Unsure about Android. I will update the ASR tree once the app is released.

With v3.5 out, the "car stopped on road" is now properly within the command tree. OP updated.
