Pronunciation of وا

Throughout the Alphabet levels in the Arabic course, the combination وا is supposed to be pronounced 'waa', but it's coming out as 'wi' in the audio. Can this be fixed?

It should be also noted that in the suffix conjugation (past tense), this combination denotes IIIrd person plural (هم), and it is pronounced as 'u' - عملوا is '3amalu', not '3amaluwa'.
