Does the rockbox software work on Tiger for Mac? And does the speech software also work with Tiger for Mac? Does the blue iray work with rockbox?

Hello fellow Rockboxers,
I've got a question about AAC support in Rockbox. What encoders does it
work with? There seem to be quite a few out there, some have different
options. I've tried encoding some files with CDEX and playing them in
Winamp, but they don't play. I suspect they won't play in Rockbox
either, so I'd like to know what people are using for AAC encoders in

Again I want to say how much I like Rockbox and respect the developers.
As soon as I have some personal funds I intend to donate. I'd be doing
programming now, but I haven't got the head for it, unfortunately. As
soon as I can get on IRC I'll be submitting some changes to the manual,
which is all I can do at this point it seems.

Thanks for answering my inexperienced questions...

Hi all, I just got on the list today, and I'm looking forward to learning
more about rockbox. I had it on my archos v1, and I just ordered a video
Ipod and am expecting it Friday.
Talk to you soon, Tom K.

Oh, got an Iriver IHP140 on order from an Ebay auction and the tracking
number for the package. I probably will set it to 0 DB for when I use the
line out on it, but since I'm blind, I will need to back it off while hooked
with the stereo before I use headphones again. That would be an incredibly
useful feature.

Hi Will,

A great resource for using iPods and other MP3 players as a blind
person is the Portable Players Portal at
