Is there a place to ask Microsoft for more voices for Azure Speech Service?

One thing I noticed after listening to all 72 English voices available, is none of the voices appear to have Southern dialects.

Some local dialects such as Texas, Georgia, Tennessee or Louisiana would provide a more complete voice set.

I think the speech is mostly really good. A few times I have to change the spelling of a word such as export to x port to get a more accurate pronunciation, but most of it sounds natural.

Thanks if this is something they can add to their voices catalog.
