What is a TTS?
TTS (Text to speech) is a technology which converts normal language text into speech. In Waze we use TTS systems to provide navigation guidance in different languages, including street names!
Want to add a TTS in your language?
Please note: Adding a new TTS will depend on the localization team priority and availability
Follow the steps below:
- Get in touch with the Localization Community Manager
- We will need a group of at least 4 editors to make the translation and work in the voice, preference for editors with TTS Regular Expression ("RegEx") experience.
- Choose a name for the voice (Male and Female suggestions so we will have both cases).
