You'll need to generate it/them, using RbUtil.

Though (nit-picking), I think what you're actually talking about is a
.voice file?
The <language>.voice file is responsible for voicing the menu structure,
whereas .talk clips are used to voice files and folders in the filebrowser.
The two shouldn't be confused.
Regardless, both .voice and .talk files will be needed for full operation
by a non-sighted user, and RbUtil can generate them both provided the
system has a supported TTS engine (on Windows, you'll almost definitely
have SAPI, so, no worries there).

You may need to check an option in RbUtil (the name and location of which
escapes me at this late hour) to get it to display unsupported targets
(such as the Classic) in order to get it to build .voice/talk files, you
may not...I'm unsure.

Aaaanyway, RbUtil is what you're after to voice your device, and its
actually a remarkably painless process.
