I've not seen anything like that, but I do want to make one small correction. Most captchas do not use synthetic speech. The few that do, in my experience, tend to be extremely difficult to solve. Most good audio captchas use real human speech, and so are usually a little easier to understand.
That being said, I would encourage you or anyone who is contemplating using captcha to consider all of the alternatives first. Captchas should be the absolute last option, and even then they should be avoided.

Subject: [WebAIM] multi-lingual CAPTTCHA
Does anyone have examples of CAPTTCHA with audio alternatives that are
multi lingual? Pronunciation of alphanumerics is not the same in all
languages, so if someone selects Japanese and gets Japanese text, are
there any audio alternatives that include such various languages in the
synthetic speech used?
Thanks in advance.
