Do you mean that the voice is completely unintelligible (doesn't sound like speech at all), or that it sounds like low-quality speech?  Completely failing would be a more serious bug.  Low-quality speech synthesis would be nice to fix, but wouldn't be a critical bug.

Marking as normal priority, then.  But confirming as NEW, because I can confirm as well that the speech synthesis quality is not as good as other readily available FOSS speech synthesis engines.
