Mac computers, Voice Over, Foreign languages

I would like to have the Voice Over in my Mac function in Portuguese. I can change the language of system and Voice Over will read it but it reads with an English pronunciation. The same is true for French and I imagine all the other languages. The effect is very strange. It doesn’t sound like the foreign language because the words have a different pronunciation. Does anyone know if this can be remedied? It is hard to believe Apple didn’t work this out.

Re:Mac computers, Voice Over, Foreign languages

What I understand it's possible to at least purchase voices that are other nationalities
Ex: Isebella Spanish
Juaiare Latin Spanish
