Hi Brian,
you can change the speed and volume of the voice clips by editing the
voiceUtils.vbs script.
Also, if you have supported files selected and you don't want to hear
Rockbox.iriver spelled out, you can add .iriver to the extension list.

For an example, with my iPod it is like this:
        (extension = "ipod") or _

Then you can run the script over it to create your .talk file.

To those who have been asking, varying the speed of speech from the control
panel does not alter the script. However now that I have NeoSpeech working
it is extremely clear and definitely worth having.
