How can I fix the way Microsoft Zira pronouces certain words?

Is there a way to change the Microsoft voice Zira so she stops saying "Mississippi" when the word miss is used as a title or with a period at the end of it?

I found two files (MSTTSLocEnUS.dat and MSTTSLocEnCA.dat) in the folder C:\Windows\Speech_OneCore\Engines\TTS\ that contain the text "mississippi" but they are both dat files and when I open them in Wordpad or Notepad, I cannot find the text. I looked in Windows Speech options and there is no place to fix pronunciations. I am using Windows 11 and it does not seem to happen when I use the David voice, only the Zira voice.
