Okay I'll file the bug and we'll see what they can do.l I thought there was a gtk interface library that qt could use but I don't remember the name of it.

No I haven't. I have been on the #rockbox IRC chanel but not filed a bug or anything. So it would be great if you could file the bug and make it high priority. One thing that may slow down the RB utility compatibility with Orca is it is written in QT I think and Orca doesn't work at all with QT applications. It may start working in the future when QT starts to use at-spi, but there is no clear time for when that will start happening. So, the whole utility would have to be written over in a different language, maybe with a GTK interface. I got a player for my birthday with Rockbox pre-installed, and had to come up with some way to put .talk clips on it. So I wrote the scripts. They work well, I am just missing the ability to make the player use the same voice for everything. I can generate .talk files using Cepstral, Espeak, Festival, and the new pico-svox voices. Voices are easy to add so long as they have a wav generation capability. If I can get these bash tools working well enough to release to the public it would make the wait for the RB utility to be rewritten or for Orca and QT to start playing nicely together easier.

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. ----- Original Message ----- From: Storm Dragon To: Rockbox Development Sent: Thursday, May 27, 2010 22:41 Subject: Creating a Bash script to generate en.voice Hi, 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 Storm -- Registered Linux user number 508465: http://counter.li.org/ Follow me on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/stormdragon2976 My blog, Thoughts of a Dragon: http://www.stormdragon.us/ Get yourself a Frostbox: http://www.frostbitesystems.com/ PULL MUH FANGER! http://is.gd/bowElReceived on 2010-05-28
