Re: Playlist - blind user needs help!

I don't know about your second idea, but the first idea seems doable, but I
don't think it would be something most people would like, but maybe someone
could give a menu option like:
Bookmark on pause
and when this is turned on, the buffer would be cleared, and when resuming,
it would pick up where the bookmark was put.

I would also like the second idea too.

Well, the unit could mark the spot in the playhing song, where it is paused,
clear the buffer, and give the voice feedback. But I guess, we are quite
close to the same as bookmarking, in such a case.

But, here is my BIG question: Why does the playlist clear on pressing the
stop-button? Would it be an idea to let the playlist reside, even in stop
mode; and rather - under the playlist menu - have a choice for clearing the
playlist? That way, the building of playlist feature, would be accessible
for those who are depending on voice feedback, as they could browse around,
and insert the clips they want, into the playlist.
