Subject: Re: I'm confused, trying to make my folders and files talk

Re: I'm confused, trying to make my folders and files talk

What works for me is to install lame
then go into:
c:\program files\lame
and paste the voicebox files there
Then press enter on the file:
voicebox.wsf
and just type in the drive that the Jukebox is identified as, such as
m:\
But make sure you have the default voice of choice in control panel, under
"speech".

Okay I copied the lame encoder to the voicebox folder I tried to open the
scrip file, got Norton to permit it then hit enter. I got a message saying I
couldn't find the lame encoder.
What do I do. Since they're script files, I can't copy anything in to it.
The lame encoder I installed it on my computer and opened it, but jaws won't
read the menus so I'm lost.

Nothing *has* to be placed on your archos or in your rockbox directory. Just
unzip the voicebox files to a folder somewhere - it can be on your PC or on
the
archos, either way - it doesn't matter. Make sure you place a copy of the
lame
executable in the voicebox folder - the one with the voicebox.wsf script.
Get it
here if you don't already have it:

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

Run lamewin32.exe to install lame and then copy just the lame.exe file into
the
voicebox folder.

To get folders and/or file names spoken, just drag the desired folder from
your
Archos onto the voicebox.wsf script using the file manager, or run ("open")
the
wsf script and type the desired folder name in at the prompt. This can be
the
*whole* drive, e.g., j:\ but it need not be. You may wish to try it on a
subfolder first to make sure things are set up and working properly.

To control whether folders, filenames, or both are voiced, you can edit the
settings in the voiceOptions.vbs file - use a plain old text editor. Edit
the
following lines, near the bottom of the file, setting them either to True or
False, to control what types of things get voiced. I think they are both set
to
true initially.

  Const VoiceFolders = True

  Const VoiceFiles = True

There are additional instructions in the readme file in the .zip, but that
ought
to get you going.
