While this is a cool feature, it appears (on my Android phone anyway) that text-to-speech always plays at 1x speed, regardless of what speed you choose in the audio settings. If text-to-speech is incapable of playing at other speeds, it seems that the audio speed setting should be disabled for text-to-speech. Text-to-speech provides a mediocre listening experience complete with pronunciation and timing quirks that give it an inhuman feel. It's no match for a real voice over reading.
