Because the basic is going t be replaced. The new basic is codenamed "Woody".
I saw those rumors. Any idea what's going to change and when it's going to be released?

We know that the Oasis has the TTS voices, so that doesn't come as a complete surprise .

Have you got access to a Voyage to see if it works on that too?

It works on the Voyage, Oasis and Paperwhite. I just copied the voice folder from the Oasis to the Voyage.

You can also build your own Audio Adapter. All you need is a USB host cable (OTG) and an external sound card: http://allesebook.de/anleitung/anlei...eo-demo-69667/

Here's a second report on a DIY audio adapter.

It says you can get the audio files here.

Those files are wrapped up in a binary installer, which I imagine will do a device check. I'll check it on my Voyage later this evening, unless anyone does so earlier.

I have a post up. I found a few details not mentioned elsewhere, including that removing the Oasis cover will disable Voiceview:

Interestingly (and a little surprisingly!) the voice file installer does indeed work on the Voyage. After running it you get a folder called "voice" containing two files: "lang_en_us.dat" (1.9MB) and "vox_en_us_salli22i" (149MB).

I imagine that at some point there'll be a version available on Amazon UK with a British English voice, and similarly at other national sites.
