As a tangent on this, I also know people who prefer screen readers rather than, say, books on tape (or similar) because even the best of the new voices don't put the kind of inflections on narrative that attempts to project what they think it means or how they interpret it.    It allows someone to use their own imagination as far as how a character might be uttering a given phrase instead of having that already assigned by the human reader.

I can see how this has a certain appeal to it.
