Say street names
Speak street names with blackberry also.
Speak street names using text-to-speech.

Please bring this out for Australia
why just US and Canada for now, why not Australia or any other English speaking country as well?
Please implement this for Android too.
I do PREFER Waze native TTS voice to the native TTS voice in android.
Hearing the native TTS android voice employed by Google maps tempts me to violence to my own phone. Yes, native android TTS voice is that horrific.
BIG Kudos to Waze!
Also allow user to specify audio channel for Waze TTS ... to avoid conflicts with other TTS navigation products
Add support for the premium SVOX voices:
SVOX UK Victoria
This is already complete. Go send your votes to another feature request!
Yes, this is such a useful feature when driving somewhere that you don't know and don't have time to look at the screen long enough to read the road name that you need to turn on to....
This is why I don't use maze all the time because in busy cities I need an alert using street name in addition to just turn
Adding this would really make WAZE a contender in the Navigation arena. I don't currently use WAZE for point A to point B navigation because of the lack of this feature. But implementing this would pull me away from Google Nav and TeleNAV.
I suppose since you said the "Android and iPhone" T2S engines that means it won't be available on Blackberry?
I think this is the best option to really propel Waze beyond the competition.
