So, TTS seems to mispronounce quite a lot of words because of abbreviations.

Could we get a patch at your convenience to change some abbreviated words as they're fed into TTS so that it's pronounced correctly?

Expwy, Expy, Exp --> Expressway (instead of 'expwee')
SR --> State Route (instead of Senor)

Makes sense, easily fixable. BTW everyone can make my job much easier if you could put more abbreviations that sound wrong to this thread :)

For now I know the following wrong pronunciations: St (street), cardinal directions, SR (State Route), Ln, Pkwy, Expwy, Expy, Exp, Ave, Blvd, Dr.

Also I don't think it is good idea to expand interstates (e.g. I-5) and US (e.g. US-101).

So everyone's help here is appreciated :)

I noticed some SR roads are pronounced properly and some aren't. Weird.

Any case,

U.S. instead of 'us'.

Tun, Tunn, Tn --> Tunnel
But distinguish tn and Tn from TN which is Tennessee?
