This is the same high-quality voice featured in the new improved Voice Search feature on Android: Google I/O 2012 - Keynote Day 1 - and now you can run it in Google Chrome. It's clear and pleasant to listen to, but also fast and responsive enough for accessibility applications. It's not only great for speech and accessibility applications, it's also a great illustration of what's possible with #nativeclient technology.
Warning: I don't recommend running it on low-powered hardware at this time! In particular, it's a bit hungry for RAM, so if your system has 2GB of RAM or less, I'd suggest you wait until we make it adapt to low-memory situations better.
I announced text-to-speech in Chrome back on October: http://googlecode.blogspot.com/2011/10/new-text-to-speech-api-for-chrome.html - if you're a developer and you're interested in adding speech to your app or extension, check out that blog post or check out the documentation here: http://code.google.com/chrome/extensions/tts.html

The Google Accessibility Engineering team is super excited to announce the Accessibility Developer Tools Extension for Chrome! It’s available right now in the Chrome Web Store.
Making your web apps accessible means making sure users with disabilities can enjoy the same experience as everyone else. Unfortunately, simple errors — like unlabeled form fields or buttons that can’t receive keyboard focus — can cause BIG problems for these users.
Accessibility Developer Tools is an open source extension that can help you find and eliminate simple accessibility errors in your apps. It adds an Accessibility audit and an Accessibility sidebar pane to the regular Chrome Developer Tools.
Please Note: Because the Accessibility Developer Tools uses an experimental API, you must enable Experimental Extension APIs from chrome://flags and restart Chrome before the extension is installed. If this is not done, you will see an error saying “There was a problem adding the item to Chrome. Please refresh the page and try again.”. You must also be using Chrome 21 or higher.
Let us know what you think in the comments! You can also give us feedback on the Chrome Web Store or on the project issues page on the project site ( http://accessibility-developer-tools.googlecode.com ).
