The only addressing system designed specifically for voice

Voice is the easiest and most natural way to interact with technology, but when it comes to voice navigation, addresses are frustrating for people to use, and are limiting the potential of new mobility solutions




Street addresses weren’t designed for voice entry


Some addresses are difficult to distinguish between

Lawn Road and Lorne Road sound exactly the same.


Numbers in street names are confusing

Computers mistake ‘240, First Street’ with ‘241st Street’.


Duplicate addresses cause navigation errors

There are 14 different Church Roads in London, and 632 Juarez Streets in Mexico City.


There are places we simply can’t talk about

Beaches, construction sites and specific entrances to large buildings don’t have an address.


Addresses in other languages are hard to pronounce

How do you say Niederkirchnerstraße if you can’t speak German?
