Re: Test of Text-to-Speech (TTS) Abbreviations in Waze Clien

sketch wrote:Possible, then, that instead of failing to pronounce it as "north" after certain words/abbreviations, it's failing to pronounce it as "north" except after certain words/abbreviations. Same result (as far as we know); different causation.

In other words, it seems more likely that something in there is telling it to say "north" after a given list of things (e.g., "St", "Blvd", any numbers) than it is that something in there is telling it not to say "north" after "Pkwy", "Expy", "Chavez", and "Turnpike".


So, if that's the case, how to we get this fixed for "Pkwy", "Expy", "Tpk", etc.? Add to the Google Docs table?

Actually, enclosing N/E/S/W in brackets also makes it say the directions.

Is there no way Waze would be willing to allow direct access to the TTS API so this could all be tested easily? Or at least give us a list of the exceptions they have in place. From that, we can conclude that everything else will be said the same as on the Nuance Vocalizer Demo online.

We use a space before and after, not inside the brackets. It does create a slight pause, yes.

Can't see from phone if it's there, but Cr gives County Road. Annoying here as it's our convention for Crescent.

We seem to have lost cardinal directions here ie (N) (S) etc :-(

Arriving at Street or road without a name is a personal favourite...
