Hey,
Hovering on the Archos allows you to generate talking file and folder
names. I'm using Paul, but he came w/ Kurzweil. I like eloquence and the
read voice.

Subject: changes to voice files

hi list.
i've been a bit busy of late and so haven't kepped an eye on the list
and
keeping rockbox up to date.
i've just been on the rockbox website to update rockbox and i see the
speech
files have changed according to it what exactly has been done to them?
secondly what is this hovering thing all about some kind of option to
only
voice things while hovering i think.
also is it me or is the speech buggy? several times while going thru the

menus in different places using the read US english voice it jus
suddenly
went mad and started reading loads and loads of stuff not even in the
menus
all about battery type, then it started saying different units of time
and
then it began to recite the alphabet does anyone no if this is a bug
with
speech generally or the voice file in particular.
also could someone fill me in why have the naturally speaking voices
been
removed? i liked paul he was a nice clear voice.
personally and i no everyones going to be shooting me down over this one
but
its my oppinion so ile state it. who cares if we officially aren't
allowed
to use the naturally speaking voices i mean who ran and told the
manufacturer for starters. what they don't no can't hert them, and i'm
sure
they make quite a bit of money as i think its scansoft that actually
makes
them so its not as if we are ripping off some developer who is blind and

sells the voices for a living which would be morally wrong.
and if we are questioning issues of legality here i'm sure that all the
other manufacturers of voices would have something to say about there
voices
being used and in fact i bet if you asked them iriver would say that
they
wern't happy about there firmware being patched or people using that BDM

wiggler thing to find out about the skimatics of the player. just my
thoughts. alex.
