    Apologies for not answering your question but I don't do phonetics. However, I have made some corrections to your post in red which you will wish to review.

    In connected speech /t/ can change into /d/ in AmE and other variants, including BrE, but you are looking at the dictionary pronunciation of two particular words in your question and not asking about changes of sound that occur in speech.
