Hovering on the Archos allows you to generate talking file and folder
names. I'm using Paul, but he came w/ Kurzweil. I like eloquence and the
read voice.

hi list.
i've been a bit busy of late and so haven't kepped an eye on the list
keeping rockbox up to date.
i've just been on the rockbox website to update rockbox and i see the
files have changed according to it what exactly has been done to them?
secondly what is this hovering thing all about some kind of option to
voice things while hovering i think.
also is it me or is the speech buggy? several times while going thru the

menus in different places using the read US english voice it jus
went mad and started reading loads and loads of stuff not even in the
all about battery type, then it started saying different units of time
then it began to recite the alphabet does anyone no if this is a bug
speech generally or the voice file in particular.
also could someone fill me in why have the naturally speaking voices
removed? i liked paul he was a nice clear voice.
personally and i no everyones going to be shooting me down over this one
its my oppinion so ile state it. who cares if we officially aren't
to use the naturally speaking voices i mean who ran and told the
manufacturer for starters. what they don't no can't hert them, and i'm
they make quite a bit of money as i think its scansoft that actually
them so its not as if we are ripping off some developer who is blind and

sells the voices for a living which would be morally wrong.
and if we are questioning issues of legality here i'm sure that all the
other manufacturers of voices would have something to say about there
being used and in fact i bet if you asked them iriver would say that
wern't happy about there firmware being patched or people using that BDM

wiggler thing to find out about the skimatics of the player. just my
thoughts. alex.
