Re: Fw: Apple pips its rivals with the iPod that talks

Hi from Rob, is it possible for current ipod users to upgrade to the new firmware? or, is it only available in a new unit. I have a 60gb video.

  According to their patent, the system uses pre-recorded clips, somewhat similar to the .talk clips you can generate for filenames for Rockbox to use, I believe.

    I wonder how does the system knows in which language the song title or
    the artist has to be pronounced. How can it distinguish between a
    Chinese, Japanese, German, or French name? I know a Japanese band with
    the name „Les 5-4-3-2-1". I don't know how I should pronounce this name
    without further information. Because of the „Les" I would suggest French,
    but that's a guess.

    Shade and sweet water!
