This message states that as of now, no SanDisk players support FLAC out of the box, and as of now there are no updates available for any player to add this function.
SanDisk's plans to add Ogg and FLAC support were shared by Jan Hauer, the Director of Product Marketing, at a conference in London three months ago. This support is not a rumour, but it is also not an officially-announced plan.
There is no new information in this email about the state of Ogg Vorbis and/or FLAC support on the Fuze.

Hmm. Looks like you'll have to transcode your audiobooks. Something like this should do the trick (in bash, at least):
for f in *.spx; do outfile=`echo $f|sed -e 's/spx/ogg/'`; (speexdec $f - | oggenc -o $outfile -); done
Assuming '.spx' is the extension of your Speex files. I've never come across files in that format. Until now, I thought Speex was only used in realtime applications, i.e. VoIP and things like that.
