Hello Pat,
You need to run the VoiceBox patch, which you may download from the RockBox
This script runs on your computer, and uses the default speech engine as set
in "Speech" in your computer's Control Panel.
You will need the Jaws Cursor, or W-E equivalent to click through the first
screen, but I believe "enter" does the default choice, which is what you
want, unless I am thinking of another script.
But it is fairly easy for a regular computer user.
But the script will tag all the files & folders with a little voice tag,
which RockBox will read when it hovers on the file/folder.
I need to meet with you in the TekTalk practice room so you will be familiar
with doing the program on the voICe for TekTalk.
My e-mail is:

Subject: blind user Iriver h140 .mp3 files are not voicing

Hey guys,
I have the Iriver h140 talking and running rockbox. Latest build. I have
the folders set up with voice clips for each of the folders and the mp3 .
files on the player. I have checked and it all looks good. I have set the
player for Rockbox to play "MP3 clips" for the folder and
file names. The folders are spoken by Cate of Speech. . I do not hear
the voice speak any of the mp3 files. . . HELP, how do I make the player
use the voice clips to speak the names of the mp3 files? How do I find
each song so I can select what I want to hear. . OK OK I am a beginner and
so please be patient. First question: does the .mp3 files show up under the
browser and can be voiced with speech? An example is I have a music folder
with about 35 files in it. I can go into the folder but none of the .mp3
files are showing up or should I say talking. . the folder names speak
fine. but no .mp3 files talk. So am I missing something?
I thought OK maybe I need to make a play list and that will show or ( speak
the names of the .mp3 files during the list creation or once they are there.
Nope. I can add a file to the play list but it really gets scrambled from
there.Can any one help please? Simple instructions only please as I am blind
and a new be.
Thanks Allot,
