I would second that idea with the rationale that it would provide the most
optimum file size for the voice file whilst maintaining acceptable quality
of sound, always with the disclaimer that quality is relative. . It's time
to update my iPod Video 30GB I think, so I'll be happy to play around with
generating a new voice file and feedback the results. I just need to find
the page which gives the parameters and their possible values to know what
to change.
