For your information: LS works nicely with Nokia C5 wind it's free screen
reader except for one thing: if the point name ends with a number the
screen reader considers all the numbers as a distance and report weird
distances. For example if address 'Examplestreet 20' is 50 meter ahead
tts will read 'Examplestreet 2050 meter at 12 o'clock'.
I have solved this by putting a colon at the end of each point name but
it would be preferable if LS could have a user-definable separator char
between point name and distance notation. If user has has properly
working screen reader the separatorn character could be defined as space.
Another, similar issue is that i have on my maps a degree notation to
indicate a curve in the road. NSR ignores the degree character and reads
the angle and distance as an one munber. There is also a risk on
confusion if the number is a civic number or curve because NSR doesn't
read the degree character but i have to solve this issue myself.
