(a) lol - that's pretty d*amn cool....
(b) does it work with the player, or only the recorder?
(c) i guess it would then be pretty easy to have "verbal button
presses" as well (accessibility? dark places?)
(d) is it worthwhile to add to the menu structure something like
"verbal directory on/off", "verbal buttons on/off", etc.?
lol - what'll you guys think of next....
