As Linus said, you *create* the .talk clips on your PC (fast CPU, lots
o' disk space, runs Windows), and the .talk clips are then "played" by
Rockbox. A realtime text-to-speech capability was way too much for the
CPU's of the early players to handle, although that is becoming less of
an issue these days.

Depending on how you organize your music and transfer it to your player,
you can either:

a) Plug your player in with the USB cable so that your PC sees it as an
external drive, and then run the scripts directly on the files and
folders on that drive, or

b) Run the scripts on the music files and folders on your PC, and then
synchronize (copy) everything over to your player.
