Greetings Steven.

Did you download the English .voice file and place it in the language folder
of your player's rockbox directory?

Hi friends,

I installed the Sansa clip firmware and Rockbox on my device and it appears
to boot up for a sighted colleague but there is no speech at all.

Does anyone have any idea as to what could b wrong please?

Subject: Re: More voicing options in Rockbox?

I was looking at the license for Espeak yesterday, and I'm not sure exactly
what the conflict is. However, would it work to have someone perhaps make a
custom build of Rockbox with Espeak included? Would that violate the
license agreements? The only reason I suggest this is because having Espeak
as a plugin would mean it would only run within that plugin due to the
design of Rockbox. I am not a programmer and have no idea how to set up a
build environment, but I'm sure it could be done.

There is actually a prototype of Espeak for Rockbox available in the
patches. I would be willing to try it on my Sansa E280, but have no idea
how to compile it.
FS#7660 - Plugin espeak TTS engine for rockbox

I also found patches for improved speech support in general, but as stated
above, I don't know how to compile them.
FS#6323 - Speech for ID3 viewer, playlist catalog and playlist viewer
FS#6324 - Experimental speech/accessibility stuff
