I'm currently using the CMU Arctic female voice. It's not bad. Though
it seems they have gone to recorded snippets of sounds and are blending
them together to build the words. So you end up with some dis-connect
in tones across some words. I could be wrong as I haven't looked at
this too deeply yet.
Still, I think the female voice does a better job than the default male
voice. But it'll be like picking a Linux distro - try out a few till
you find one that works for you.
