Brazilian Portuguese reading rule for URL omits speaking "barra" in place of "/"

When trying to create an audio clip for a URL in Speech Studio, the Brazilian Portuguese language reading rules for URL's (both automatic and explicitly applied) omit the pronunciation of the "/" in the URL.

So if I have something like my.example.com/billing it'll read that back as my punta example punta com billing instead of my punta example punta com barra billing.

In the screen snip attached, I'm using the Francisca Neural voice. You can ignore the lexicon, I'm only using that to override pronunciations of a couple unrelated words.
