Subject: Re: Recorder 20 available again in the UK!?

Re: Recorder 20 available again in the UK!?

From: Rocker <rocker_at_shaw.ca>
Date: 2005-08-13

I'm hoping sooner then later but as has been clearly stated on this list,
there are lots of bugs still to be worked out with the IRiver port. The
good people who have the knowledge and capability to work on the voice UI
are busy working on making other aspects of rockbox stable on the IRiver.
Thus, a time frame for implementation of the Voice UI cannot be pinpointed.
I wish I could do it myself as I feel like a lame duck sitting around
waiting for it. Remember this work is all volunteer so if someone out there
wants to pick up the ball and run with it then I'm sure there is lots of
help available from the rockbox devs and wickie pages.

Cheers...rocker
