Robot Voices - Are they getting better

Hello all,

Not so much a question, but an observation.  When you click on the little speaker symbol at the end of a Spanish sentence, the robot voice has a go at reading it out.
There seem to be three or four different robots now, when I started with Kwiziq I think that there were only two.
I call them

"Mateo" - he's the "good" Spanish man, his reading seems to be quite good. Some UK users here may know why I call him Mateo.
"Marisa" is the older sounding lady, sometimes it sounds like she struggles, and is nowhere near as good as a human, and sometimes sounds both angry and bored.
A new lady, "Maria" seems to have come along as I have moved into B2 Lessons, she sounds younger and to me much better.

So what do people think of our robot voices?  If it was possible I'd ask for "Maria" to kick Marisa to the kerb, as her Spanish sounds more fluent to me.
Buenos días.
