Can someone send me a link to the TalkBox page?
I seem to have lost my link.
I haven't been able to get the TalkBox to speak my MP3 clips of the folders.
Or is the TalkBox feature built into Joerg's English.voice file?
Also, I have never found the hover option in the CFG file.
Can someone tell me where to write it in?

Heh - I think you earned it. Thanks for all your efforts. =)

I could have used this on my way home tonight, driving a manual
transmission in stop and go traffic in the dark, and trying to select
the next album on my recorder without causing the FOURTH accident in an
8-mile stretch of freeway. (There's a reason we call them Balti-morons,
ya know... and I don't think they were all just trying to use their MP3
players without a voice UI. Grrrr.)
