I ran into speech demo Programming Speech in WPFSpeech Synthesis  which is based on Speech Application Programming Interface or SAPI  SDK  5.3  and found sound quality is not good because Xp default voice engine is  
Mircrosoft  Sam (you can find what voice engines have been installed on the computer by following Control Panel->Speech->Speech Properties->Text To Speech tab->Voice selection drop down window)
Try to download Microsoft Anna for my XP.

SpeechSynthesizer ttsSynth = new SpeechSynthesizer();
 ttsSynth.SelectVoice(“Microsoft Anna”);
//ttsSynth.Volume =  //ttsSynth.Rate 
 ttsSynth.Speak(“Greetings, my name is ” + ttsSynth.Voice.Name);
