How about slowing down your listening speed?  LOL.  The JAWS diffult is set to 15, slower then snails.

Well, pilgrim, how ‘bout The duke reading your shopping list oh, how I wish I could write that in Winterset, Iowa dialect)!  I’m personally a fan of Vocalizer’s Karen, but reading at my speed means I can’t  use any of them, except Eloquence, for very long.

Well, "sexy" is in the ear of the beholder, that's for sure.

I've found some of the "foreign" (for the United States) accented voices on Garmin, particularly one of the British female and Australian male, voices to be rather mellifluous and somewhat sexy.  Everyone's mileage will, of course, vary,

I don't find, for instance, the SAPI voice "Microsoft David" that I use with NVDA "sexy" but I do find it, in many instances, particularly when it's reading through something at beyond the letter or word levels to be remarkably lifelike in most instances.

Not knowing the synthesizers that various people are using it's impossible to suggest generic ways to search for a "sexy" voice for them, but I'd be willing to bet that someone has created them, even if they're not commercially available, but it's a matter of finding them.  Inflection, breathiness (or lack thereof), and vowel duration are a lot of what get's tagged as "sexy" when you think about voices in real people that are described as sexy.  These are parameters that it's possible to control in a speech synthesizer.

It would be an absolute riot to create a "femme fatale" or the male counterpart thereof synthesized voices for use with anything, screen reader or not.  I don't think that anyone would use the most "over the top" versions for any period of time, but they could make for great entertainment value over a short term.
