Searching for Text-to-Speech Dictionary for Spanish Voice Paulina in Captivate 2019

I am developing an entire curriculum in Spanish using the Spanish Voice Paulina, but there are certain product names, departments, (not to mention the company name itself), that are mentioned often and must be prounounced as English words.  Currently we're trying to listen out for each mention of these English words, then rewrite them into creative nonsense words using Spanish vowels to trick Paulina into pronouncing them correctly.  However, this is taking a great deal of time considering the volume of lessons in this curriculum, and in doing some research I discovered that Captivate can "re-program" the way certain automated voices pronounce specific words using the Text to Speech Dictionary.

 

However, after finding the Text-to-Speech dictionary, there are only 7 voices available to work with, none of which are Spanish speaking (which means no Paulina).  Am I missing something?  Is there a way that I can find or download the Text-to-Speech Dictionary for additional voices beyond the standard 7?

 

Thanks for your help!
