Take a look at the .voice files. I had a similar problem creating voice
files. The problem was that the file name was English/us.voice and it has to
be just english.voice

I have an iPod Video, and I am working on putting Rockbox onto a friend's
iPod Video, the identical model as mine, 5th gen.
On mine, I got the festival voice clips to talk, but on his, I can't even
get the festival English.voice file to work.
I even tried copying over my .rockbox file onto his, and it does not work.
I managed to get into the files, and it works, and the volume is okay, so
know it is not that.
I had my sighted son confirm that Rockbox is booting up as well.
Any ideas, or can someone with a working iPod Video 5th gen with a good
English.voice file send me your .rockbox folder?
Also, it appears that the TTS engine on my computer does not generate talk
clips either.
But when I test it in the utility, it works.

Thanks for any help.
