Hi, Brian.
        The simplest way I've found is to use the HTA file included in the
script zip file. Uncompress the zip file, launch
        voiceBox.hta
        and tab around. You'll first find some links, one to the lame
encoder which you should have downloaded already as per the instructions,
one to the rockbox site, and so on. You should, after a few tabs, get to a
bunch of checkboxes. Voice folders, voice files, and so on. After having set
these to your liking, you can continue tabbing and eventually get to an edit
box where you can enter the path to your iriver, or, if you only want the
contents of a certain directory voiced, the path to that particular
directory. You can, instead of entering the path here, tab once to the
browse button and browse to your iriver or the folder on your iriver. Once
you have the info in the box, whether through the path or through the browse
button, tab to "run voicebox" and hit enter. That should do it. There are no
progress indications, but there is an indication when the thing finishes and
a voicebox.log file is created in the directory the .hta file is in, so you
can monitor through that if you're so inclined.
        HTH.

Hi

I would really like to make it possible to use the script available to get
the folder names to speak on my iRiver using Rockbox.

I have been manually recording myself the names of albums and saving as an
MP3 file with the name _dirname.talk. However with so many albums on my
iRiver now I would really like to use the script to generate the files.

I am visually impaired and have read the instructions relating to dragging
and dropping items "onto the script" which to be honest did not make any
sense to me I am afraid and I thought I was quite good at using computer
technology (smile)! No disrespect intended but I just did not understand
it.

If there are any visually impaired people who have done this and who would
be willing to write to me and let me know what the simpplest way is of
getting my folders labelled in this way using text to speech, that would be
great.

Thank you very much.
