Text To Speech Reader

Hello,
a few years ago I got one of the last Sony PRS-T1 devices with a built-in headphone jack.

I've rooted the device and installed Cool Reader along with Ivona Text To Speech when the app was still free*. So I can enjoy acoustic reading while riding my bike.

Ivona allowed 1 voice for free so I installed a German voice named Marlene. Now I'd like to read some English books but I didn't manage to install a different voice. Replacing the Ivona data files wouldn'd do the trick.

Should I install another reader or TTS engine? What's recommended?

Google Text To Speech would be great but that's not for Android 2.3, unfortunately.

Best regards,
Hein B

*) It still works if I set the system date back back to, say 2011. If the PRS-T1 Android OS would allow to go back to 2006 even the weekdays would match but next year, 2018 will match with 2012 ;-)
