I've always loved the word "impossible" ...it's like a red rag to a
bull ...We have more than sufficient processing power to perform TTS
...Of course it will not be up to the standard of a 10GB PC install
...but we can produce something better Stephen Hawkins ...probably my
smartest idea was to make a language called "blind" which would
display the menu text as f'oh'net'ik spellings ...now that we have
WAV/PCM playback on the Archos units (previously "IMPOSSIBLE") it
really isn't going to be that difficult to write our TTS such that it
works on all Rockbox units.

Why is it "a penny for your thoughts" but you have to "throw in your 2
cents"?
...someone somewhere is making a penny!
