Re: [Bulk] Voice file and menu entry mis-matches

Hello:

If you used the rockbox utility V1.2.2 program, that is indeed the result.

I would suggest that you go to the Rockbox site and manually download the
current release and the associated voice file. You will find that all will
be well again.

Cheers.
