Microsoft Azure Studios - Can't get voice to pronounce "butcher"

I'm attempting to get audio of the word "butcher" but can't get it to pronounce the "u" sound correctly, despite every effort with the pronunciation tool. I tried this with the Jenny and Aria voices. It sounds like "bewtcher".

Jenny also has problems with "hoodie" ("hewdie") and "pudding" ("pooding").

Does anyone have a way to get these words pronounced correctly?
