The female voice used by bookshare audio is pretty good.

I know that the Daniel UK voice is created from the “blueprints” of an actor’s voice..Jonathan somethingorother (can’t recall).
For a good time, try the Kate (UK) voice and write out “Hey! How’s it going?” or something liket aht
She sounds so enthusiastic she squeaks…
You have to get the exclamation mark in there after a single preparatory word though.

Some of the voices recorded by humans, sound a little off too. One of the female U S voices sounds like she is having a bad day all the time and needs to chill out as they say. I guess it all comes down to what you prefer. I heard an interview of the woman who does the Australian voice, Karen and she went into great detail as to what was involved in creating that screen reader voice for JAWS or IOS devices. The voice got named after her real name, Karen.
Eliquence sounds like it has a cold sometimes.
