This cannot work. There has to be support for the additional
characters in the code. Only the unaccented latin letters, the
numbers and the dot are voiced, no other characters. If we want
voice support for other characters, this does potentially mean
thousands of them, especially as we support full unicode now.

This isn't possible with the current approach. The voice files
are really tight already, on archos because of the total RAM
size limit, and on iriver because the buffer for the voice file
is allocated permanently, and takes RAM away from the audio
buffer.
