I've been trying to make a voicefile for my Sansa Fuze V2. I used the SAPI5 engine with a NeoSpeech voice. It's a big voice but it sounds great.
In Rockbox utility 1.2.8, it would do it half the time, and sometimes it would give an error. I guess it's because the voice is so big, it takes up lots of memory.
However, in the new 1.2.10 utility, i'm completely unsuccessful in creating voicefiles with this voice. It always gives an error. It says encoding of "C:/Users/KevanGC/AppData/Local/Temp/rbvoice//random file name.wav"" failed. It gives a random filename, I guess because it's trying to encode the .wav files, taking too much memory, and getting stuck on a random file.
Rockbox utility version 1.2.8 did the same thing, but only half the time with the settings set exactly the same. The new V1.2.10 does it every time I try, but I'm able to create voice files on it just fine if I use a different voice.
The NeoSpeech voice does work correctly. I'll attach one of the logs it gave me so you can get more info.
I'm just wondering, since the old utility worked half the time, and the new one doesn't work at all, does the new one use more memory?
