How do I make another text to speech language work on Server 2008 or 2012

Last Modified: 2016-10-29
I've installed the TTS mx-ES language runtime on my servers.  I can see it in both the "Programs and Features" and the "Text to Speech" functions of Control Panel.  However, when I select the mx_ES Hilda voice in Speech Properties, it give the error: That voice cannot be played.  Please try selecting another voice....

At first I didn't see the mx-ES entry but I found a registry mod that changed \Speech Server\v11.0\ to \Speech\ and that made it show.  What do I need to do to make the Spanish voice work?
