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.
Perhaps the answer is already in this thread; I've skimmed through some of it but there are 53 pages so forgive me if I missed it
The spreadsheet entries are tests to confirm or deny expected or desired results. When you see "n/a", that means that the abbreviation tested did not work as expect or desired.
As Doctorkb said, the best solution at the moment is to enclose a N, E, S, or W in single quotes to get the letter only pronounced. If it still does not work, then use a lower case letter in single quotes.
Yes 50 some pages is a lot to digest. No problem asking again.
