Re: voices files we can use for rockbox

well, I reread the license agreement for the AT&T natural voices I have
pruchased from nextup.com, and true, the use of the software is quite
restictive.

in short, it's really limited to personal usage , any other usage is now
allowed.

But if they are not so stupid, I think they can understand the spirit of
Rockbox and make an arrangement. I really wish they will do it.
because as far as license is concerned, the same kind of restiction are put
on the Scansoft voices for which I was now planing to make my new voice
files.

There's no need to ask us these questions because we all feel the same way.

Still, when you get a mail from a company (regardless of the situation),
threatening with legal actions, I think it would be stupid not to act and
try
to sort out the problem.

This issue has not been closed. It is very much alive and the final words
have
not been said about it yet.
