that doesn't recognise Māori macrons
New Zealand Post has moved quickly to fix an IT problem that failed to recognise Māori macrons in names and place names.
Māori business owner Kristy Bedi highlighted the issue after NZ Post's system failure to recognise some Māori words that include tohutō (macrons).
Bedi, (Ngai Tahu, Kāti Mamoe, Pākehā) said the NZ Post system was "not good enough". In her line of work she needed the correct addresses and place names, to send her taonga to her customers.
