There are some existing ones to download at and instructions to install them at and also instructions how to record a custom voice at Your task is to combine these information into a comprehensible guide that describes how to record and install a custom voice such that in the end one has Marble speak your own voice in guidance mode.
Expected results: A finished section that users can easily follow.
Prerequisites: An installation of Marble 1.2 (KDE 4.7). Can be compiled from source code as well. An installation of Marble on the N900 would be nice, but is not absolutely necessary."
