Is there a way for the waze app on the iPhone to verbalize the fact that there is upcoming traffic, upcoming cop, etc.? Because having to look at your phone while driving is not the safest thing.

Indeed it does. Usually it'll say "heavy traffic reported ahead" then the recalculation beep, then the ETA change. At least that's my experience.

Used to be able to change the preferences file but last time I tried it didn't work. It expects an American accent, so is a bit useless over here atm.

Over-pronounce the S sound like I-Ssss? It'll be looking for a specific waveform pattern, that should give the ASR what it wants.

Voice Command for Police on Other Side of Road?

Postby djg_21 » Thu Apr 27, 2017 1:53 pm

Is there a voice command that can be used to report police on the other side of a highway? I know I can report manually by tapping buttons, but I prefer to use voice commands while driving.

What about other languages (such as french)?
I live in Montreal, Quebec and most all street names are in french and the text-to-speach has a terrible time at trying to pronounce those french names in english. As I don't have any problem with either language, I switched the text and speech to french and it's much more understandable now!
However, when I try to give it a voice command, it doesn't seem to understand anything anymore. I tried both english and french words/phrases and nothing get recognized.
