Changing Text to Speech voice packs

Is there a way to change the voice packs that the Kindle uses for Text-to-speech? I do obviously know how to switch the selected gender voice on the device, but that's not what I'm asking about. I find that there are various other TTS voice packs out there that are far superior, but I don't want to be confined to using TextAloud on my PC to utilize them.

Whether this requires a hack, or even Duokan (though preferably not, if possible) I still want to know if/how this can be done.

No, there's currently no way to install new voices.

You can also get UK english too with this method.
