If street names are changed to abbreviate the type of street (Dr, St, Pky, Ave, Blvd, etc.), as suggested on this page, will Waze pronounce them all correctly?

Waze road types for Canada

Highways in Canada (specifically Ontario and Quebec, my only experience) are different than ones in the US. According to the US road types we would have no (or few) major highways. Several highways are major, but not limited for example in the Montreal/Ottawa area.

148 117 125 132 138 in Quebec, which are major compared to 300 series routes which are in yellow.

17 138 38 7 in Eastern Ontario, this would distinguish them from county roads which are all yellow.

It would be far more useful for Canadian wazers to have these as major highways, how about we define standards for Canada?

How about out west and the maritimes? I don't know the road systems out there but are there similar problems?

Street names and abbreviations

The default (system generated?) street names of many streets in Canada are not abbreviated. Will these names be auto updated by the system? It would be a huge amount of work to edit all the street names to show abbreviations as suggested.
