    More natural text-to-speech voices (preferably free!)
    I'm dong a experiment, where I'm seeing if the computer reading articles, e-books etc., improves my memory, and comprehension of the material. But what is aggravating is that the quality of the (built-in) text-to-speech voices is still not great.

    Does anyone know of any text-to-speech voices (preferably available free online) that are more 'natural' sounding than the ones that come with OS 10.4.11 (i.e. the operating system I'm running!)?
