Title: rockbox having speech?
Post by: gugster32 on October 31, 2004, 07:18:41 PM
I am new to rockbox, and I was wondering if it is true that rockbox will make the archos (certain models) talk?  I heard this from a family member and wanted to know for sure if it is true or not.  I am blind and would be very interested to know. 
thanks

Yes, it does have speech. Look here for a description of the voice UI:

In addition, you can have it saying directory and flie names, by offline preparing little mp3 clips.
Here's how to do that for directory names:

Can't find the wiki page about voicing the file names right now, but the above should keep you busy for a while. ;-)

I updated the wiki page to have a little more info about both; I think Jens had added some stuff as well before I got around to it.
