Hi,

OK, you can find all the information related to voice file building here:
http://www.rockbox.org/wiki/VoiceBuilding

Start with the section referring to using Cygwin. However, first read the
information on creating a Rockbox build environment and checking out the
latest source code here:
http://www.rockbox.org/wiki/DevelopmentGuide#Setup_Your_Environment

Remember, it's the cygwin-related instructions you want. Cygwin works in a
command-prompt style window so should be accessible by most screen readers.
I use Dolphin's products myself, if you do too I'm happy to help off-list as
I'm very familiar with that product.

There's nothing really special in the way of software that is needed, and I
will assure you now that anyone can do this, even blind users. But again,
just shout if you need any other help. Good luck.
