I *love* TTS (Text To Speech, aka Read Aloud), on both my kindle and my Android.
The built-in Kindle 3 TTS sounds great to me as is.
To get a good experience with it on Android, you need to download other voices, as the built-in one does indeed sound very computerized.
My favorite is Ivona's Amy or Kendra. (Free, still, in app store) I tried the SVOX voices, but wasn't impressed.
