  1. hit vo f8
  2. Navigate to speech or hit cmd 3.
  3. choose the default section and hit down arrow on the pop up button
  4. Hit customize.
  5. Choose the voices you want.

As the previous comment said, you can only add voices from Nuance. If you'd like other voices, you will have to purchase or download them from a third-party website. It all depends on the voices you wish to obtain.

As de above posters said, you need to know which voices do you prefer. The Nuance ones are free. I personally use Acapela voices, I prefer them than the Spanish Nuance voices.. Now each voice cost one voice credit per voice per computer. Each credit cost $14.99 or €14.99.
I remember when I bought the voices four years ago or so, and the license cost €115
