Re: Improvements in Voice UI and a bug that remains

From: David Wright <>
Date: 2006-04-30

I am currently using the CVS build for rockbox on my iriver h320. Currently
I am unable to access my device via the voice UI. In fact, the device
constantly freezes up. Does any one know where I can get a stable version of
the software for the h320? Thanks for all your help in advance.
