User reviews of SVOX US English Michael Voice
Much much better voice than stock one with the phone. I don't know why the stock one needs to sound so terrible.

I've used this for several years. It's a very natural voice. Wouldn't be without it

I really like this voice. To be honest the fact that the voice data is stored on the SD Card and not in the /data/(package name) folder is disappointing. Also this application keeps showing up as a black screen in my recent apps menu. You can fix that with one line of code in the AndroidManifest.xml file. Google it. I have spoken to many other users of svox and they all agree. Please fix at least one of these issues on the next update. Then this is truly worth 5 stars.
