You can use Asterisk and Festival (both free) to accomplish this with a voip account or landline. The festival voice will be robotic and you may want to upgrade to a voice from Cepstral for a whopping $35.00 (one time fee).

Once you have asterisk set up, you can set up a job to read emails, convert the body to a wav, call the end user, and then read the wav file.

If your Cisco VoIP system has SIP licenses, you could connect the Asterisk server into a SIP account on the Cisco system, and pick up a line from there to dial out. This means you can do exactly as palner suggested, without having to purchase a PRI card. You just need any spare box with a NIC.
