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.

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.

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.

Why reporting language depends on country where you are driving? I have Russian Android interface, as also Waze, but Waze will request German Commands in Germany... Thanks God I can speak German, but it will not happen with all languages. Could it hold on what is set in Waze? Or at least as Phone language???

Do you know if there is there any way to enable this in the UK?

Voice Commands not working

Postby Heyjaypay » Tue Jun 13, 2017 3:03 pm

I have noticed recently that the voice commands aren't working, especially when trying to report a hazard on the road. Reporting traffic, police, etc. Works most of the time but whenever I try to report a hazard, It keeps saying "try again", "I didn't hear you" and finally "canceled". I know it's not myself who's too quiet, as I'm almost shouting trying to get it to hear me :x . I have a feeling it has something to do with spotify and my music, but turning down/pausing my music doesn't help either. It would be nice if waze could not only fix this issue but also add a feature to pause spotify when you wave or tap the screen with three fingers to make voice commands easier to hear :roll: . Anyone else having this issue? If so, any temporary fixes?

The app does verbalize alerts of this nature - I have heard them.
