This should be removed. It's not a good abbreviation and there are "Nat" streets in the US.
"Nat'l" should say "National". But yes, "Nat" should not. We really should be more careful with these.

I hope this is a typo!

For those unable to see that UR.
Have there been any recent changes to fix this? I searched and couldn't find anything related to this particular thing. And if this isn't TTS issue per se, what would be the recommendation to fix?

I'll try to test this issue more to resubmit it AGAIN to Waze.
The two other strange issues mentioned earlier are still not submitted to them, as testing has been tenuous at best lately with the ongoing zero byte TTS file returns as many of you have noticed in the beta clients.

Here are the very inconsistent results I found testing just a few Roman Numeral examples:
Fred IV = Fred eye vee
Fred X = Fred ex
Fred XIV = Fred fifth
Louis IV = Louis eye vee
Louis X = Louis ex
Louis XIV = Louis fifth
John IV = John the forth
John X = John the tenth
John XIV = John the four-teenth
Malcolm IV = Malcolm the fourth
Malcolm X = Malcolm the tenth
Malcolm XIV = Malcolm the four-teenth
Mark IV = Mark eye vee
Mark X = Mark ex
Mark XIV = Mark fifth
Curiously the results for [Malcolm X] are correct for Roman Numeral usage, but wrong for what we need for that particular name,whereas other names with "X" say "ex" as in the letter x.
We may need to use [Malcolm "X"] to get the results we want, in order to differentiate from Roman Numerals usage. This would be consistent with the use of quotes around N, E, S, and W to get the letters pronounced instead of the cardinal directions.
Also note that for some names "XIV" is pronounced "fifth" and other others "fourteenth".

I think we want C, D, I, L, M, V, and X pronounced as letters. It seems that Roman numerals are the exceptions and should require special notation if used at all.

From what you listed, there are thousands of them. That's clutter.
What range do you really intend to cover?GizmoGuy411 wrote:So maybe Roman Numerals could use a period after them instead of quotes to differentiate them.
That doesn't seem likely, at least not if you intend to cover a range beyond 1 to 30.
What's wrong with using Louis the 14th instead of Louis XIV.? If anything, our experience with N/E/S/W should tell us that it was a bad precedent that should not be expanded.

I tried 16 times to download the TTS for this segment and got empty files every time. Not sure what's going on here. I know with 100% I heard two different "Pkwy N"-ending segments pronounced with "north" so this is ... confusing/concerning. The TTS system appears to be pretty unstable right now.
Finally got it: https://www.dropbox.com/s/sxefwon98h5s2 ... _1.mp3.mp3
Question is, why isn't the app getting this same thing?
