It's on the FAQ page, under the question "What voices are available?".
Orca works with all voices/engines supported by gnome-speech, which
today includes Festival, FreeTTS, Fonix DECtalk, and IBMTTS (which comes
from the same source code base as Eloquence, and sounds remarkably
similar). I'm not aware of any hardware engines supported by
gnome-speech directly, but my information may be old...

P.S. This is another great question for the <orca-list at gnome.org>
mailing list. I encourage you to take your Orca questions there!
