Subject: Voice file and menu entry mis-matches

Voice file and menu entry mis-matches

I've noticed since installing the v3.3 release on my iPod Video 30GB that
the voice file may be speaking something different than is actually on the
screen. This means often settings and menu entries are meaningless in the
context within which they are presented.

Here are a few examples of navigating through menus. The entries given
are those spoken by the voice file. As I'm severely partially sighted,
it's very difficult for me to try to visually see what's on the screen,
but I figure it must be the voice otherwise surely others would have
raised this issue previously?

Menu > Settings > General Settings > System > Disk > Disk Spindown > 400
mA Hours
Menu > Settings > General Settings > Voice Directories > Treble Cutoff > No
Menu > Settings > General Settings > System > Limits > 10 minutes
Menu > Settings > General Settings > System > Directory Cache > Time &
Date > 5 seconds
Menu > Settings > General Settings > Playlists > Rockbox Info > Yes
Menu > Settings > General Settings > System > Maximum playlist size > Car
adapter mode
Menu > system > Battery Level > Free Disk Space 28% 3 hours 12
Menu > System > Time Format > Maximum entries in file browser > 0 minutes

Other oddities include:
"Yes, recent only" is spoken after System in Menu > Settings > General
"Very fast" is spoken after the Alarm Wake-up screen entry under Menu >
Settings > General Settings > System
"Free disk space" is spoken rather than Battery level.

As you can see, this makes using most of the player's features quite
unuseable. Also, I cannot find the rockbox info > build info section
anywhere, although I did stumble across it in some completely unrelated
menu last night. In any case, it's using the rockbox supplied voice file
and daily build from 27 Jun 2009. The same however happens with the
latest daily build which at the time of writing was 29 Jun 2009 and voice
file from the same date. I've tried making my own voice file from a
different TTS but this makes no difference.

Any guidance much appreciated.
