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.

        Hi Derek, i've played around with getting my classic to talk. Apparantly the menu options for that is available. What i am currently struggling with is to find the .talk clips which fits the Classic model. The closest match i believe would be the .talk clips for the iPod video. Could anyone on the list point me to where the .talk files for the classic are located ? They are not in the daily builds archive under "extras"..
