OK thanks, I downloaded a voice and extracted it to the lang folder, in fact
I chose the same voice as you. Now presumably what I should be able to do
is to press the AB button (bottom right on the iRiver) to get into the menus
and hear them talking. Is that correct? If so, it is still not speaking at
the moment.

Please let me have your MSN sign-in name if you can please help.
