I just found an AT&T demo site for text-to-speech

The reason why it's so good, is that they don't generate the speech from
scratch but instead concatenate recorded speech pieces. This also means that
the program is rather huge, and that listening to text at a speed different
from recording will not sound very good. See "Concatenative synthesis" on
for more details.
