Ave "S": Avenue ess
Ave 'S': Avenue ess (same as above)


Interesting. Are you sure it was "North ess" and not "Northess"?

Testing this made me realize something that we need a new feature for the client that end user can press to hear Voice instruction from Waze.

In another words, you would normally hear once or twice from the client to turn right or left etc. If you weren't paying attention and wanted to hear again, you can click on a button and the client will repeat the instructions again.

If somehow this is exist, please let me know.

It was "North ess".
That's why the feature I suggest make sense. You can click on it to hear it again.

not a bad idea. I don't think it exists.

However, Waze is known to talk a LOT. It usually give 3 voice instructions for a turn that will occur over 1 mile away and the last 2 include the name of the street.

Hi Andy,
Did you get a chance to see my findings?

Thanks

Wajo357,

How is your test going regarding the Avenue's with a single digit letter at the end?

I propose to change all the one letter formats. See examples below:

Avenue N in New York results in Avenue North - this is Wrong...

If we change to Avenue 'N' Waze Client will announce it as Avenue enn.

To keep things uniform; I would suggest to change all the roads with the letter at the end to be changed, not just the one with "N", "W", "S", "E".

Avenue 'N'
Avenue 'Q' etc...

Would other Waze Champs please comment on this issue? What do you suggest we should do regarding "Avenue N" issue. Please let us know if you want us to change just those letter that indicate: North, South, West, East or change all.

Also:
Since "N" and 'N' resulted the same result; which format would you prefer?

Thanks

I'm seeing conflicting information on these single letter street names. Please bring that discussion to the official TTS thread to get those questions answered.

I spoke with the TTS champ on the matter. He is going to double check it with his test setup. So I should hear back in a couple of days.

In terms of my voice test, Ave S. Still says South.

A-B says ayybee
A - B says ayy to bee

Going to test the second toll test today
