I've been researching Text to speech (TTS) software lately. There is a wide range available, some of quite good quality. I imagine that high quality TTS will become part of consumer operating systems sometime in the next ten years or so.
Meanwhile, there are plenty of web-based TTS software demos around. Here are my personal favourites. Enjoy!

Rhetorical also have "Valley Girl," the only TTS voice I know that can say "Like, y'know?" and "Well, duh" without any coaching.
