The German lady sounds pissed

Anyone else feel like the woman's voice that reads the sentence for you sounds like she's irritated when you ask her to say it slower?

As the 'lady' is actually a text-to-speech engine, I can assure you: she isn't annoyed at all ;-)

I think same effect happens with most voices when slowed down.

That's true. Not that it bothers me, it's kind of amusing. :D
