Czechs usually ask question in negative form. For this reason, I think one of the acceptable answers shall be: "Do you eat bread?"

No, that is not true. Czechs use negative questions when offering something politely, but that is not happening here.

OK. Then one more question: Is "Don't you eat bread?" another answer or isn't it accepted? If not, why?

"Ty" is not necessary but you can add it if you want to put more emphasis on it

The TTS is not perfect. It is a coputer, not a human.
