Another way to do it is as follows:
- iPodder is the program I use
- set it to download podcasts to "E:\podcasts" where E: is the drive
letter of my archos (or iriver)
- Under the advanced preferences, check "run this command after each
download" and then set it to run the voicebox script like so:
start /min wscript "e:\zzz files\voicebox\voiceBox-silent.wsf" e:\podcasts
I have the voicebox program stored on my archos in that e:\zzz....
folder" and the parameter given is to voice all files in my podcast
directory. It basically just catches up with whichever file is not
voiced yet.

Note that I have modified the voicebox.wsf file to not play a ding and
not to pop up the confirmation message when it is done. It's fairly
silent that way, with just the occassional DOS box popping up in the
button bar now and then. This is what I changed...just commented out
three lines...

'--- DON'T Let user know script is finished.

' sWaveFile = "%windir%\media\ding.wav"
' Shell.Run "sndrec32 /play /close """ & sWaveFile & """",0,True

' dummy = Shell.Popup("Clip generation completed.",5,"voiceBox",64)
