Alrighty, I'll spend some time poking about at the script and see if I
can make it do something like this:

1) Run a setup script to set the configuration (e.g., voice folders
only, voice folders and files, etc.) and to specify the drive and/or
folders on which the voice clip generation script should be run with
those particular parameters. Then save those settings in the form of a
shortcut - on the desktop or other folder, if specified - so that it can
be re-run easily with no further input. One-click voicing (TM). I'm
thinking an HTA would do nicely for this job.

2) Include the option to generate additional feedback on the status of
the process, perhaps by speaking folder names as they are processed
(could be annoying, IMO!) or at least something like 'Processing folder
10 of 100 / 20 of 100 / etc.' This option will be selectable in the
setup script.

3) Add some new file types to be voiced for the iRiver - Ogg, and ???
What are people using? I don't have an iRiver personally, so I haven't
paid much attention to the formats it supports.

I will now go into lurk mode again until I have something new for you to
test. =)
