Do we have real sounding text-speech technology yet?

    Most TTS I hear on YouTube are still easily recognizable as fake, but I think my Sky Broadband helpline voice is fake too but she sounds as real as a real person does (or maybe she's a real person), does anyone know of any real sounding text-speech voices out there? I'd imagine it's hard tech to pull off.

    This technology is still really far off from my experience although, I think Google is doing a pretty good job with Google Translate reading text aloud. I think with all Google's crowd sourced voice data they will be one of the first on the market to crack this problem.
