Well, that would be a good question to ask Apple themselves. I would highly recommend that you contact the Apple Accessibility Team to make this as a request. You will certainly not be able to get answer to that question nor would get to Apple to make that happen here on AppleVis. Just like with most things Apple never really let people know if and when things will come along. So to be heard I always suggest that people contact Apple for something like this request.

The language you'd like to have a voice for isn't being worked on by Nuance, the company now providing voices for Apple. Might I suggest contacting Nuance Communications about this? I haven't seen a Croatian voice anywhere.

Nuance's vocalizer system has actually been working on new languages recently, but apple would have to update it. They have not done that even though they could, but if they were to do that, the following languages can be added: Bengali, Bhojpuri, Bulgarian, Croatian, Kannada, Marathi, Tamil, and Telugu. In addition, nuance has already had voices in some other languages that apple has made unavailable on IOS, which include Basque, Galician, and Valencian. This requires no work on nuance's part, so there may be some use in asking apple to make the updates necessary for these to work on IOS and MacOS.
