#1182 new enhancement/feature request

Text and speech enhancements for clearer guidance

Reported by: attila istván nagy Owned by: KaZeR
Priority: minor Milestone: version 0.6.0
Component: core Version: git master
Severity: trivial Keywords: announce, speech, directions


Navit should announce the turns depending on the distance. I mean the "Turn right now" announcement is perfect, but those announcements that contain distance should be formulated differently, like "In 200 meters turn right". This way one listening to the announcement can decide from the first word that he is supposed to do the recommended move right now, or this is only a reminder and the action is due later. This should be expanded to every sentence where a distance or "now" can be included (like entering roundabouts etc.).

Not that we should copy from others (which we should if the other solution is clearly better:))), but my old Tom Tom 6 does it like this and I found myself feeling a little weird while listening to Navit and waiting for the end of the sentence to be able to decide whether I should do the turn now or later.
