If you want your directory names spoken as words, rather than spelled
or given numbers, you need to know that rockbox doesn't have any TTS
capabilities. It wants to see a file called '_dirname.talk' in the
folder. That _dirname file contains the name of the folder in MP3
format. One of the rockbox programmers has released a script to create
these _dirname.talk files automatically see

http://joerg.hohensohn.bei.t-online.de/archos/speech/mp3ClipGen.vbs

to get that script and

http://www.mp3-tech.org/software/encoders/lamewin32.exe

to get the lame executable which it requires. Install lame, copy
lame.exe and the mp3clipgen.vbs script you get from the first link
above to the same directory, then run the mp3clipgen.vbs script. You
will be asked to enter the folder where all your music is stored.
Enter the path to your jukebox (make sure it's connected). That is, if
your jukebox is drive letter J:, enter 'j:\' and hit enter. The script
should, in a few minutes, give you a success message.

What I wasn't sure of. Is there any other user intervention other than
downloading the 2 files?
