Apple added a few higher quality ones a couple of years ago. While
most of the voices are just meant to be funny (& yes, my kids love
them too), there are a few that sound reasonably good. I use them a
lot and people get used to the sound very quickly.

Now my experience in this respect is limited to Mac & Win: both of which feature really bad voices - the Mac ones have been trotted out with each version of the operating system for at least 10 years never beeing upgraded; they all sound seriously warped. Win XP comes with one installed.
