Yes, in fact, that sounds intresting, but I googled a bit around:

Mobile Speak:
"Works with a wide range of text-to-speech technologies, including
Scansoft and Acapela."
I understand that Mobile Speak is either implementing SAPI on Series
60 Symbian or presynthesizing the prompts like rockbox does.
Furthermore, it's pretty clear it's not freeware, so I doubt it's any
kind of open source.

It's done by Scansoft (apparently called "Nuance" now), so roughly the
same as above applies.

I have got no Symbian Cellphone, but a few of my test-devices at work
are, so I could check our the free one month trial.
