Subject: RE: Warranty void if seal broken

Which one is it, can't remember. I've not downloaded it. Normally
though they sound like a vaguely middle class home-counties accent.
That means not exactly queen's English, but sort of Tony Blaire's
accent, but fortunately not his voice. The effect of accent is
somewhat diminished though, by the slightly false intonation, present
in all but the latest "realspeak" and AT&T "natural voices". You
can't really have a "general UK accent", without upsetting half the
population.

I did some acting some years ago, and would love to use those skills
to record voice prompts with accents. I've not heard Christi's voice
yet, so can't judge that one. The accents over here vary far more, as
I'm sure you know, than do accents in the states. OK a newyoiker
sounds very different to a te,e,e,exan or whatever, but there's not
much difference between say a Maryland accent and a Californian one.
Oh Christi, can you imagine your MP3 player speaking with a broad
black country accent? or better still, a drunk Glaswegian.

Hey, why does Vermont exist? has anything important ever happened
there, what's it famous for, do they believe in cruel and unusual
punishments, (hope so or there's no point going!), and where is it? I
think it's a fictional creation.

Hey Rob, or Christi, or anyone from Great Britain,
I was wondering if the UK English voice sounds like someone from
particular
part of the UK, or if it may be characterized as a general UK accent?

I'm very much looking forward to getting an 80 GB drive in mine, I've
filled both of my 20 GB units, and need more space. Having been a CD
collector for 20 years, I've got over 1200, the frustration is the
amount of time it takes to rip them. I can only do about 20 CD's in a
day, I've probably not yet done half my collection. Do you upgrade the
fm recorder and the recorder v.1 in the same way? also is there any
documentation on the site to tell you how to do it? I was looking at
the Hitachi drives, as they seem to be cheaper.

Rob

Thanks for the info. I haven't quite hit the 20 G ceiling yet, but I'm
close - and I still have quite a few of my CD's left to rip. I think I
may be due for a disk upgrade later this summer. =)
