HA Alexa Media TTS quit working

Just noticed that my Alexa TTS events quit working. Might be from an HA or HACS update.

Posted the issues on github / Alexia Media

Home Assistant 2022.10.4
Supervisor 2022.10.0
Frontend 20221010.0 - latest
HACS: 1.28.2

The quickie fix is to use Announce instead of TTS. Thing is that before announce you hear an announce tone from the Alexa devices.

Here using one Alexa Dot for audio to the Russound which is mixed in with audio from Homeseer SAPI TTS.

If you go to Developer tools service you can test.

Code:
service: notify.alexa_media_ics_echodot1
data:
  message: This is a test
  data:
    type: announce

Note this used to work and right now it is not working.

Code:
service: notify.alexa_media_ics_echodot1
data:
  message: This is a test
  data:
    type: tts

Alexa Media player TTS functions are working now as of 1700 C time. Same reports of it working on the Github problem page.
