That is irrelevant. Most of the people keeping voice files updated with
the evolving lang files are those who benefit the most from them, I.E.
visually impaired users. I believe the process of generating voices and
talk clips should be kept apart, or at least as a modular component of
the Rockbox code so that those without the Linux/Cygwin know-how would
still be able to contribute. Generating a WPS file requires no
programming environment, and I strongly believe voice clips should fall
under the same category. BTW, are there any specs for the new lang file
posted anywhere? I wouldn't mind taking a crack at updating the
MakeVoices script to work with it until we can all agree on a common
solution.
