copy to the following email address.

Hello again
 
Well, I did it.
I have rewritten the voicebox script to support SAPI4.
There might still be some quirks, but now I have generated talk files
for my mp3 files using Eloquence SAPI4 and folder structure.
Let me know if you are interested.
 
Best Wishes,
Peter Herngaard

Hello Daniel
 
Yes, the line is the correct one.
In order to use SAPI4 instead of SAPI5 in the voiceutils.vbs script, you
must make some changes to the routines.
Unfortunately I don't have time to rewrite the SAPI5 routine to support
SAPI4.
 
However, you should be able to find some documentation on SAPI4 and
SAPI5 at Microsoft's homepage.
 
Best Wishes,
Peter Herngaard

Hi Peter
 
Thanks for replying to my last email. I still have a bit of a problem,
the line I found in the script was the following.
spkr.Rate = 1. '-10 <--> +10
This seemed to be different to the one that you said I Should find but
if this is all fine then what part of the
spkr.Rate = 1. '-10 <--> +10 line do I have to edit.
Also what part of the script do I have to edit to use SAPi 4 instead of
SAPI 5.
All help greatly appreciated.
Cheers Daniel

Hello Daniel
 
1. Yes you can. Just look for the following line:
 
 spkr.Rate = 2. '-10 <--> +10
2. As far I know Eloquence isn't available as standalone SAPI5 voice.
But you can modify voiceutils.vbs to use SAPI4 instead of SAPI5.

Hi I have downloaded the voice box script and selected Microsoft Mary
from the control panel as the computers default voice.
I have a few questions.
 
1. Can I speed up or slow down my talking mp3 clips in rockbox by
adjusting the speed of the default voice in the control panel, and if
this doesn't work is there another way to speed up or slow them down?
2. Is it possible to get eloquence as a Sapi 5 voice or, is there any
free Sapi 5 voices that I could get apart from Microsoft Mary Sam and
Mike to create my talking mp3 clips for rockbox, and if so where would I
get them from?
 
All help greatly appreciated.
Cheers Daniel
