I've got a lot of artists that aren't really organized, so if you could give me pointers on a good fast voice to spell file/folder names, that would be helpful. I've got 3500+ songs and would like a database if possible. Also, how does .mp3 (192 kbps) compare with .ogg (64 kbps)? Also, how does the database view work, for anyone that uses it? How do I choose where I organize my music? Does the playlist part of rockbox work with rockbox and speech, also, the equalizer settings? How about the volume; does it speak the volume to you?
Have a good day

For this reason, I've never used it; I just organize my music as well as I can, putting each artist in a separate folder and each album by that artist in a subfolder of the artist folder. With most iPods, the estimate is that Rockbox reduces the battery life by half. There are lots of chips on the iPod that Rockbox developers can't figure out what they do because Apple doesn't release specs that include this information. As a result, some functions on the iPod are probably on that don't need to be. The situation may improve, but there are no guarantees. To get the menus to speak well, it's important to have an up-to-date voice file. The most up-to-date ones are generated automatically at http://www.klarich.net/rockbox/ and http://tbrn.net/rockbox/ The latter site uses a program called 7zip, available free from www.7zip.com. When you use one of these, be sure to change its name to english.voice. As for VoiceBox, it creates a voice clip that speaks the name of every music file and folder on your player, and these clips are played back when you choose "talk MP3" in the Speak Folder and Speak File settings.
