    I need a Text to speech Converter and I've found a couple of free text to speech converters but they all sound like robots doing a jingle. I'm thinking of getting a paid Converter as I think the quality may be a bit higher than the free converters. Any Suggestions?

    Ivona is great. The only problem is you cannot use it commercially.

    I have used TextAloud along with the "Paul" voice (250 MB voice library). It was pretty good. You can tweak the text file by adding certain text symbols to accent certain words or to change subtle pronunciations by tweaking the text file.
