I'm not an H10 user but I'm blind too.
So You must copy the last updated voicefaile You can get in the .rockbox/langs folder.
When disconnect the player from Your computer. And start it up. Normally, if You push the button that starts the menu You will hiere something, When You go to the general settings, go into it, and when search Spech or voice. In that submenu You can select, if Your menu is talking to Your. Or Your directories are spelled and so on.
If You need anymore help.
Please, tell me.

Dear Barry,
Hi back at you and thanks for answering my call for help.
My Iriver h10 20 gb ) bran new) decided it did not want to boot or become a working machine. So I am having to send it back.
But determin to do this I bought a new Iriver H140 40 GB and hope to get that one soon. So no UMS mode to deal with thank God.
But I am still hoping to find on the list help with the player and getting it into rockbox asap. I will keep your great instructions and hope to be able to apply them soon.
Thanks again,

  Hi Pat,
  Here are instructuions for installing Rockbox on your H10

    a.. Download

    b.. Connect your H10 to the computer using UMS mode
    c.. Make a backup of the H10_20GC.mi4 file in the System directory on your H10
    d.. Copy the H10_20GC.mi4 you downloaded to the System directory
    e.. Download the latest CVS version of Rockbox from

    f.. Unzip the zip file to the root (topmost) directory on your H10 (while in UMS mode).
    g.. Eject the H10 and disconnect from USB and Rockbox will start up.
  To put your H10 into UMS mode, get a pin and use it to push the reset button. The reset button is inside a small hole between the hold button and the remote control port and headphones socket. Pushing this button will fully power your H10 off. Now, connnect the H10 to your computer. Hold the O button, which is on the front of the player to the right and slightly above the scroll pad. While holding O, turn the H10 on with the power button. Continue holding O for a few seconds and it will start up in UMS mode. If it worked correctly, your H10 should appear as a normal drive on your computer.

  I don't know anything about getting voice support working as I have never used it. Maybe someone else on the list can help you with that.

    Dear List,
    I am totally blind and would like to use a I river h10 20 GB to work with Rockbox. I have read the documentation posted on this site but wonder if any I river h10 users would be willing to help me with the step by step information concerning the player and how to flash the drive so I can set it up for speech. It sure would be appreciated.
    thanks Alot,
