How do I tag partial text of a Mastery Connect item as Spanish?

If you create a Mastery Connect item that contains both English and Spanish language text, you can manually tag selected text as Spanish using HTML. When you tag text as Spanish, the text-to-speech tool reads the tagged text using Spanish pronunciation.

Note: Alternatively, you can create a Spanish language item, which the text-to-speech tool reads entirely using Spanish pronunciation.
