App identifies name fix shortlist
|21 Sep 2017 16:30 PM|
Tauranga, Waikato, Taupo, Manurewa, Rotorua and Whangarei are the names which most urgently need to be fixed on Google Maps, according to Vodafone's Say it Tika! app.
More than 54,000 New Zealanders used the app during Te Wiki O Te Reo Maori to pin incorrectly pronounced te reo Maori place names.
Vodafone New Zealand consumer director Matt Williams says more than 8900 place names were pinned, and there were 870,000 views of the video with Temuera Morrison on a cow promoting the app.
Vodafone and Google, in consultation with Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Maori, will work through the list to enhance the pronunciation of these names.
