Toggle languages in Voiceover on Mac

I am accustomed to using JAWS to test web pages for lang="es" and other languages.
I realized that some JAWS voices provide multiple language support and some do not.

However, now, for my work, I am doing the same type of testing on a Mac.
The OS is Catalina.
I have installed multiple voices.
I can hear Spanish being read when I choose it for a Spanish website or document.
What I cannot do is get Voiceover to switch from 1 language to another in the middle of a page.

On another forum I was told to Go to Settings/Accessibility/VoiceOver/Speech/Detect Languages/ and choose Toggle On.
But there is not Toggle On for me on that screen.

I would appreciate any guidance you can give.
