Hello Daniel

1. No, you don't enclose your command in quotes.
3. The SAPI4 version of the VoiceBox scripts functions in the same way as the one supporting SAPI5. However, the option activating the Control Panel Speech options doesn't modify any SAPI4 settings.
4. To set the SAPI4 voice, refer to the voicebox.wsf file (the section entitled SAPI4 support).
You will need to change the value of some constants.

Best Wishes

  I downloaded Peter's script off the rockbox webpage and unzipped it.

  I ran the voice box script and checked the boxes for both file and folder names. And I started the script. Once it had finished I checked my iriver for .talk files and could not find any. I also noticed that the script didn't have the over write .talk files. I read in the script that I had to go to the command prompt and type the following line.

  Cscript.exe listvoices_sapi4.vbs

  I tried this command about 5 times with and without quotes. But it had an error message and said

  That the command had apostrophes before and after it but I had typed quotes not apostrophes. So I couldn't execute the command.

  1 Is this the correct line I am typing in?

  2 Do I use quotes cscript.exe listvoices_sapi4.vbs command?

  3 When I run the voice box script will it work the same as the one that supports SAPi 5?

  4 How do I choose the SAPi 4 voice I want to use?


  All help greatly appreciated.

  Cheers Daniel
