I think that the version called
Talkbox will help, but it is not the entire answer.
It seems to me that if games can be written to work on the unit, that it
should be able to be operated with the ability to utilize personalized wav
files, and it might be able to use a cheap little speech engine, but I don't
know how much memory can be spared in the O S for such a thing.
There are some very small programs that use synthetic speech, and although
the speech is not very good, by today's standards, it should work, and we'll
take whatever we can get to give us feedback from the screen.
Linux uses a speech program called speakup, but this relies on a hardware
synthesizer, but perhaps there is a little program for Linux that will work
like some of those DOS programs did, in that they would send synthetic
speech to the PC speaker.
I hope this generates some interest from some of you who are much more
familiar with programming than I am.
Glenn.

Probably a silly question, but, how may I gain by using th enew rockbox
firmware over the elected to be pathetic original archos one? How would
someone who can't see the display benefit from the newer rockbox firmwares?
Maybe beyond focusing th player on specific files you could change menu
options from th pc too.
