I would think that the letters "BIA" would be fine if the TTS results were predictable for letters. However even when all caps are used, results can be either the letters spoken or an attempt to make it a word. Adding spaces works with exception of the N E S W letters which result in the cardinal directions. So "B I A" should work for now at least. I suppose I should add a test for "B.I.A." too, so as to match the signage.
