Use the System Speech Preferences, click on the ‘System Voice’ popup button and pick ‘Customize’. Please note that Siri voices are allowed to be used only in apps made by Apple.
Some apps install voices that can be used by Speech Central.
Apple restricts Siri voices only to the operating system functions. This is done to protect the user privacy as the user might be sharing his private data with Siri. While this sounds reasonable Apple has already proved that such risks can be managed by implementing the mechanism in which an app asks the user for the permission to use a potentially risky resource. Please encourage Apple to implement such mechanism by sharing your feedback using the Apple’s feedback assistant. In the header press the icon to start the new feedback, then pick ‘macOS’, and then mention that you would like Apple to implement the mechanism that would allow you to give apps permission to use Siri voices.
The app supports dozens of keyboard shortcuts including various capabilities to navigate forward or backward in the content. All shortcuts are displayed in the app menu.
