I still don't understand why the voice interface is not available to
plugins, the mod to make it work is (or at least was) trivial. Of
course you've got a limited vocabulary, but that is where a little
lateral thinking skill comes in handy. With regard to speech synth
in Rockbox, it seems that no active dev is especially interested in
it. From old threads it seems that it should be perfection or
nothing, that "give it a couple of days and you will understand
everything" is more a Stephen Hawkins thing. Need to convince or
acquire the attitude of "better than nothing" in the dev team again that mp3 players are starting to get close to the power of an
old 80's home computer, it is definitely possible - it's already been done! :)
