RE: Variable speed on the Iriver?

Hamish I agree that more speed would be good. Also if there is some
algorithm that allows the speed to be increased without increasing the
pitch, that would be super.

Hi

Thanks for the info about the speed info not being stored in the cfg file,
that is a shame. I also agree that some sort of reset to normal capability
would be useful as would adding the info to the cfg file if this were
possible.

I have been using this function on my H340 and am really enjoying being
able to crank up my speed a bit but was wondering if there is any
possibility that might allow for the maximum speed to be increased because
although I am enjoying what there is now I could still quite happily go
faster than the maximum increase allowed. Many blind people are used to
listening to our screen readers at 100 miles per hour and I would love to be

able to go faster than is now allowed.

Cheers and keep up the good work.
