Hi jens, please forgive me not replying to your message directly, but I never actually got it in my mail box for messages from the rb list, and i had to read it from the rb archives.

However, thanks for the info you sent me, unfortunately for whatever reason, what i am entering into cygwin does not seem to be working. I think my sapi 4 is ok, as I have been able to make cygwin generate 1 voice with it before, however it would only generate for the default voice in the control panel, which there seemed to be no way of changing.
below, i have pasted all the various things I have tried entering into cygwin, and the various error messages I got each time. I got all these after running a make veryclean command on my build folder.
all these were entered when I was asked for sapi options.
/sapi4 /voice:<Adult Male) Reed>'
sh: -c: line 0: syntax error near unexpected token `)'
sh: -c: line 0: `cscript //nologo C:\\cygwin\\home\\rockbox\\tools\\sapi_voice.v
bs /language:english /sapi4 /voice:<Adult Male) Reed>''
Use of uninitialized value in substitution (s///) at /home/rockbox/tools/voice.p
l line 97.
Generating voice clipsmake: *** [voice] Error 141
  I also tried doing the above with a single ' i also tried entering just the name reed in between the < and > signs, all with virtually the same error messages.
  Would it be possible for me to send you the installer that i got my voices from? or to upload it to the net somewhere, for you to have a look at? as I no i'm probably making a mistake, but I can't think where it is, as i've tried several different combinations of things to try to get the voice name. getting the sapi_voice.vbs file to list sapi 4 voices wasn't much help, as the info it output was listed in the control panel anyway.
  do you use skype or msn? as perhaps it might be easier for us to chat off list.
