Hey Storm,

Have you told the Rockbox guys about the fact that the utility does not work with Orca? I am on both the Rockbox-dev and Rockbox regular lists and I can also put a flyspray bug up there and try to make it a high priority.

  Subject: Creating a Bash script to generate en.voice

  I am working on a set of scripts for Linux to handle voice generation for Rockbox. I have a script that can create .talk files for directories and files. the only thing that is missing is a file to create speech for the menus etc. I downloaded the RB source and read through the perl scripts, but I don't have much experience with perl and got lost rather quickly.
  The reason I am trying to get all of this functionality in to bash scripts is because the Rockbox utility does not work with Orca, the screen reader for Linux. Also, it is rather nice to have the ability to generate .talk files in the right click menu.
  So, my question is, to create the menus and general speech clips, is it just one filewith all the clips in a specific order? Do I need to create the en.lang file too, or can I just use the one that already comes with it? Oh, also, if I do just have to create one file in specific order, where can I find a list of words in the specific order that should be used?
  Thanks for any help
