Festival is an open source text-to-speech system.

Stanford 10 uses it for their Natural Language Processing 9 class, and they have up-to-date instructions 8 about installation on this cs224s homework page. Installation 7 on Mac OS X requires a couple patches, which 6 they've wrapped into a handy install script.

There are 5 alternate voices you can use which sound 4 noticeably better than the stock ones. You can find 3 information on these voices in this forum 2 post: How to setup more realistic voices in Festival. Those instructions are for Ubuntu, but 1 the voices work with any Festival installation.
