Subject: RE: talkbox for dummies

Hi, Jason.
        You said
        I've been following (not very well) the discussion on "talkbox", the
talking
version of rockbox. Can someone explain on a very high level what this is
and what it does?
 

        I don't know what you mean by high level, whether you mean omit the
detail or include as many as possible. On the chance that you mean the
former, talkbox does three things at the moment.
        First, it speaks the menus of the Archos units. It allows
modification of menu settings, obtaining of information in the menus, and
actions to be performed from the menus. All this is done without any need
for the screen. Not all actions are supported, but the majority are.
        Secondly, it spells, or gives numbers to, the file names in the
directories, and uses either voice tags or spelling to identify directories
in the file system's structure. This allows browsing around the disk without
the display.
        Finally, it identifies bookmarks by index number and time.
        Hope all that is of some use.
        Aman
