"Alt" (as in "SR-15 Alt") is correctly said as "Alternate" (though pronounced as "alterneight")

"Conn" ("connector") and "Sp" ("spur") are also used in Georgia so it'd be nice if those were added to the list :)

I live in South Africa and find WAZE a brilliant application.
Problem is that TTS is wrongly describing our HighWays.

All South Africa's National Highways and Roads are "Prefixed" with an "N"
The "N" stands for "NATIONAL"

In Johannesburg the major highways are:
N3
N1

TTS translates this to "North 3"
It should remain as "N3" because the N SHOULD NOT translate to "North" and no one refers to them
as "National 3" so that wouldnt make sense either.

TTS should remain as "N3"

How can this be achieved?

If "Exit 70A-B" is what the sign says, as a driver my personal preference would be to have Waze say the same thing, as opposed to leaving the ramp unnamed. That is, first I get told to keep right for 70A-B, then left for 70A to Minnewaska.

... and the "v" is for Volvo.

Mispronunciation of the town name "Framingham" (MA).

Noted on this segment: https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=usa&lo ... s=22556252
Road Name: "Exit 20B: SR-9 W / Framingham / Worcester"

Framingham should be pronounced "FRAY-ming-ham"; Jane is saying "FRY-ming-ham"

Is the format always a single letter followed by a period and a single number without spaces?

Yes it is. I've tried to work around it with other combinations and still work pronounce right.

UR reporting mispronunciation, WME and App confirm:
https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=usa&lo ... lter=false

W Parkway Blvd is being pronounced as "parkwell". However, when the Blvd is removed, "parkway" is clearly heard.

All roads including the name "Magothy" are being mispronounced.

Jane says "Ma_goth_e" but it should sound like "Mag_eth_e". Listen here: Proper Pronunciation

Lower Magothy Beach Rd
Old Magothy Bridge Rd
Magothy Bridge Rd
Magothy Rd

I was told this is the right place to post ... if not, let me know and I'll move it.

Encountered a strange mispronunciation with Jane.
https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=usa&lo ... st=7298685

Road is Cookstown (Cook's Town) but was pronounced cukes town (like short for 'cucumber').

Thanks!
