The fact is that these modern, human-sounding synthesizers are
absolutely notorious for doing this. To me it's maddening as I don't
want my reader, human or synthetic, to substitute what's on the screen
for what it thinks are the correct replacements based on commonly used
abbreviations. This is one reason why there will always be a place for
voices like Eloquence and ESpeak.

You could try a regular expression match on:  GD-(\d{1,})    and
replace with Gee Dee \1
This should make GD- followed by one or more numeric digits read as
Gee Dee followed by the actual number that the string of digits
represents.
