Hi bluechip!
If you have a Rock box voice pacage for the Ipod 30 gig I would be grateful if you could send it to me. We have been trying for two weeks to load everything from We have followed the instructions. Everything seems to be there the voice is in the lang file. It will not work. For some reason some of the Rock Box members have been rude to me and said the we did not follow the instructions. I am not tech savvy and become frustrated when something does not work. I do not have time to keep fooling around with this. If I can not get it working I guess I will give it to my kids.

Thank you for your assistance.

.It will need updating, and although it's more a "chore" than a
."techinical task", I still have the "one-click-install" rockabox
.devkit which would solve the problem for blind people.
.The main criticism of it, was that it only included exactly that
.which was necessary to compile Rockbox, and so would go out of date
.as rockbox required more files nad didn't contain such things as gdb
.which the hard-core techie wanted.
.Of course, the other upside was that it was a 10MB install, not a
.250MB install.
.If anyone wants it, just ask, probably beter to do so to my personal
.email account and put something BIG AND OBVIOUS in the subject line
.in case my spam filter decides to get picky.
.Picked up on the thread late, hope I didn;t miss the point.
