Subject: Difficulty creating Voicefile for Archos Recorder with Utility

Difficulty creating Voicefile for Archos Recorder with Utility

I've been trying to create a new voicefile for my Archos Recorder as the included one is too large to work when using the current version of Rockbox (as per FS#9753 --

I had also hoped to use one of my own Sapi5 voices.  However when I attempt this using the Rockbox Utility (tried versions 1.2 & 1.0.5) I receive an error stating "The downloaded file was empty" and all progress stops.

I've had no trouble building .talk files and have also successfully built a voicefile for iPod 4G with the utility but cannot find a solution for this error with Archos Recorder.  My uneducated guess is that the file provided that should contain the list of entries for voicing is corrupt from the server.  Please advise -- I have rolled back to Rockbox version 2.5 in order to use the standard voicefile (as the small one posted by Domonoky is difficult to understand), but would very much like to use one of my own voices and the current stable release of Rockbox.
