Hello Daniel

1. Yes you can. Just look for the following line:

 spkr.Rate = 2. '-10 <--> +10

2. As far I know Eloquence isn't available as standalone SAPI5 voice. But you can modify voiceutils.vbs to use SAPI4 instead of SAPI5.

Best Wishes,
Peter Herngaard

  Hi I have downloaded the voice box script and selected Microsoft Mary from the control panel as the computers default voice.

  I have a few questions.


  1. Can I speed up or slow down my talking mp3 clips in rockbox by adjusting the speed of the default voice in the control panel, and if this doesn't work is there another way to speed up or slow them down?

  2. Is it possible to get eloquence as a Sapi 5 voice or, is there any free Sapi 5 voices that I could get apart from Microsoft Mary Sam and Mike to create my talking mp3 clips for rockbox, and if so where would I get them from?


  All help greatly appreciated.

  Cheers Daniel
