Subject: New voices available

New voices available

I'm not sure if anyone has been benefiting from the voices i have been
putting up, but since the menu structure has drastically changed, new voices
had to be made available.
I haven't looked on the main rockbox site to see if new voices are
available, but even if they are, I have been making voices for a little
while, and for those who don't know, they are available and listed by date,
for your convenience.
This is an automated process and if English.lang changes significantly, a
new voice file with current date will be uploaded, so if you like the voices
there, check back regularly.
The voices are in the 7z format. 7Zip is just another compression format
but it works well in this particular situation.
I am willing to accommodate those people who cannot for some reason or other
open 7z archives, but it's a simple download from so it
shouldn't cause the majority of users any issues.
However if it does, I will consider switching to zip which even windows XP
can open, be it badly.
I have just found the downloads to be smaller using 7z so that is why I use

If these voices crash while recording or there is any other problem, please
tell me so I can make speed adjustements.
Since November 19 or is it 22 of last year, voices above a certain speed
(about 270 wpm sapi4 and over 80 percent sapi5) have caused most targits to
crash and this bug has as yet, not been addressed. This of course makes the
voice file in the ram of the targit larger, and most voices (if any) will
now not work on Archos players for that reason.
Until this bug has been addressed, there's honestly not a lot I personally
can do about it, so I appologise in advance for what I consider to be mainly
slow voice files, and especially quite large. Most of them are over 1.44 mb
in size.

Thank you for reading.
