i still find the voices to sound artificial, could be ages before they really sound natural

Wow, this is really cool. It could, for example, enable voice customer support where the support rep is typing, but users computer is speaking it out. Intercom dudes, free idea for ya :p

Why is it that the female voices sound so much more realistic than the male voices?
@ianhunter in the US it would seem we have gotten accustomed to generic female voices (unlike for example Germany re: GPS). but there's actually more psychology here, see http://www.cnn.com/2011/10/21/te... re: the genericity and likeability of women's vs men's voices

@1wu Spanish, Danish both sound the same to me. Male voice is clearly robotic.

Amazon Polly is a service that turns text into lifelike speech. Polly lets you create applications that talk, enabling you to build entirely new categories of speech-enabled products.

Pocket should implement with this. I'll pay a couple bucks per month for premium text to speech
