Unable to use neural text to speech


I am trying to follow the documentation to try the neural newscaster style. The docs say that

  1. Open the Amazon Polly console at
  2. On the Text-to-Speech page, for Engine, choose Neural.

But as the screenshot I have attached shows there is no place to select "Engine". Any thoughts?

==== Update ======

Figured out the problem I was using us-east-2 instead of us-east-1. When I specify the us-east-1 console then I can see the expected frontend
