[maemo-developers] Efficient storage and playback of speech

Hi all,
   I need to install on the device a few (I guess around 10-20) audio 
files with some seconds of speech each (it's for GPS navigation).
What file format do you suggest to use, considering that one requirement 
is that the audio is played almost immediately (the lag should be under 
1 second) when I request it to?

The 22Khz 16bit WAV from the sound recorder sound good, but they are a 
bit "heavy", taking more than 100Kb for 3 seconds of speech.
I'm a bit concerned because I'll eventually ship translations for these 
audio files in different languages, so they might end up taking quite 
some space.
