Windows 7: Can I use a voice besides "MicroSoft Anna" in Text to Speech?

Can I use a voice besides "MicroSoft Anna" in Text to Speech?

Is there a way to use a voice besides "MicroSoft Anna"?

Also, once I record text where does it go so I can use it, maybe in the scheduler? Is it a file and what is it's name?
Can I create more than one?

So far as I know the tts engine in windows only comes with the one synth/voice there were several for xp but I don't think they are compatible with the upgraded format.
There are tons of them out there, even some web based apps with many options you can just paste you text into. I think is still around.
