Subject: Further issues with creating voice files

Further issues with creating voice files

Okay after fiddling with the new Rockbox Utility I was able to finally
create voice files using SAPI5 voices for both the Sansa Clip Plus and
Clip Zip. It seems to work okay for the Clip Zip but the Clip Plus
cuts off the first part of whatever comes up speaking when the player
is turned on, such as cent bookmarks instead of recent bookmarks,
after that things work well enough. The remaining issues on both
players are that any new menu items in the latest stable Rockbox
version aren't voiced. For example in sound settings the item between
volume and bass is silent, and there are several silent items between
dithering and Time stretch. While in Playback settings there is an
item called Western European between autochange directory and last .fm
log, another missing item between prevent track skipping and set as
playlist catalog directory. I saw a few other inconsistencies
throughout other menus but didn't make notes.

Apparently when the Rockbox Utility pulls the text to be voiced from
the installation it's missing these new items. I checked back on the
voice which is downloadable from the Rockbox site and it speaks these
missing items. So can this be fixed in the new Rockbox Utility or can
the voice creation aspect be forced to get the list of items to be
voiced from the rockbox site instead of from the installation?
