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.

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

The standard TTS setup for vocalizer handles this fine, so I'd assume the nav version should do all the ordinal numbers too.
