A beta version of a windows script (requires SAPI5) that voices files
and/or folders (depending on how you configure it) can be grabbed here:

http://mysite.verizon.net/Brian.Wolven/Rockbox/voiceBox.zip

I can't guarantee this will work for everyone yet. I'd appreciate
feedback from anyone who tries it; you may want to keep the logfiles and
send them to me if you get errors, or post them here if they are short
enough. I would recommend running it on only a few files or folders at
the start - folders are processed recursively, so don't run it on the
root of your drive as a "test"! Pick a single album or artist, or just
run it on playlists and config files, as I've done. It works fine for
me, but Jörg got some errors that I *think* I've resolved now (I guess
he must sleep sometimes - go figure). A few more data points would be
helpful!

Oh - and verizon webspace can be flaky, so if the URL doesn't work,
please just try again later.

Bonne chance and all that...
