Wajo357 wrote:2) On some of the ramps I've seen, the ramp name is "Exit 70A-B:...", but it is read as "exit 70ayybee" without any break between the ayy and bee. If I add a space before and after the dash Waze says "Exit 70ayy to bee. What do you guys recommend in such a situation?
In most such situations, the "Exit 70A-B" part of the ramp should be left unnamed, allowing TTS to use the appropriate "Exit 70A" or "Exit 70B" ramp name from the upcoming offramp. There may be some instances where the "Exit 70A-B" might be needed, though -- can you provide a Permalink to the interchange in question here?
Hi Spil, as far as the first one we moved that topic to TTS forum. We are waiting to hear from them. On our tests we found out that putting the letters in quotes help (either single ' ' or double quotes " ")

For the second one; I don't want to step anybodys toes but I have one for you. I don't think this is the same one Wajo357 mentioned though.

Chickasha

Jane pronounces as "Chick-cash-uh"

Should be "Chick-a-shay" ('tʃɪk.ə.ʃeɪ)

Seems like "Amarillo" is being pronounced as "Aye-ma-reel-oh" instead of "Am-a-reel-oh".

IPA is /ˌæməˈrɪloʊ/

Denison is being pronounced as "D-y-son" instead of "Din-iss-son". Not sure of the IPA for this one.

The address is correct, however the pronunciation is completely wrong. My voice is set to "English (US) - Jane". "Dennison Lane" is being announced as "Niacin Lane".

When 'N', 'S', 'E', or 'W' should NOT be pronounced as compass directions,
The global abbreviations wiki https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Abbreviations_and_acronyms has
enclose the letter in single quotes.


The USA-specific wiki https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Abbreviation ... ronyms/USA has
the letter should be followed with a . (period)
When in doubt, use the USA version if you live in the USA. The international wiki has a longer revision process that can cause some inaccuracies to persist. Plus there could be differences in the TTS engine by country.

Here's a broken pronounciation:

Street name is "Riley Ridge" should be abbreviated "Riley Rdg" but TTS says Arr Dee Gee.

'keeps saying Skelby instead of Shelby.'

I was using Jane also. Destination was somewhere in Forest City, NC. The only time the word Shelby was spoken was at the exit.

Problem with Airpark Dr in Redding, CA - it sounds like Airpok Dr in the App. You can also hear it said incorrectly in WME.
