>From Daniel's message, we're talking $3,000 firstly, then $1500 thereafter
per annum. Even then it's not going to be all we want. I'm of the opinion
that the quality of voices we'd get from individuals could be significantly
better than ATNT anyway, and if I was to donate more money to the rockbox
project, then I'd ideally want it to be spent on developing new ports or
improving existing ones, not on paying for commercially available voices
that we can get another way.
Certainly the ones that Christie did a couple of years ago were far more
understandable than any synthetic voices.
