Maybe all they are including is a software like TalkBox.

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!
