rockbox and voices on the mac?

Hi friends,

My name is Erik. I just got a sandisk sansa e200v1 rockboxed. I'm
really happy with the player and how rockbox is working with it.

I've got the rockbox utility for the mac installed and working. It
has some minor problems working with voiceover but over all ot's
pretty functional.

I'm having trouble getting rockbox to recognize voices on my mac
though. The only one I have that will show up on the rockbox utility
for me to use is oddly enough, a demo of a cepstral voice that's not
comadible with snow leopard and which I thought had been uninstalled.
I can't figure our hot to use the apple voices. I have Ivox
installed, but the roxbox utility isn't seeing them either. I
downloaded espeak for the mac, but the instructions for installing it
don't seem to me to apply to the mac, only to linux. I went looking
for a copy of flite, but it looks like flite has been discontinued.
Im my haste, I installed the cepstral demo onto my player, and now it
nags me continually to register. Not real bright I know, but I didn't
think it would be that tough to fix.

So, is there a known compadibility issue with rockbox and mac voices
on snow leopard? I tried the archives but got a 404 url not found.
I'm sure this has come up before though. If so, please forgive the
repetition and feel free to email me off list if preferred.

Best,

Erik
