Subject: RE: Ipod Video is Talking

RE: Ipod Video is Talking

From: Barrett, Don <Don.Barrett_at_ed.gov>

Actually, using the voicebox script, all folder and file names are
voiced, although it is a little tedious using the system because of the
wheel. Once you get used to it, it really works and is wonderful. If
Tom gets a chance and puts in the click which will signify next or
previous highlighting, that will really make it super easy.

How much speech support is there currently?
I know its in the very early stages but are only certain menus voiced?
