Subject: Re: voice strings for FM radio

Hi Manuel,

My understanding of the Rockbox code is still very sketchy, so apologies
if this is wrong. However, the edit preset/delete preset menu seems to
be set up with the standard menu code, with an entry in the menu items
struct for edit preset like this:
{ ID2P(LANG_FM_EDIT_PRESET), radio_edit_preset },
If I understand the code correctly, any code using the standard menu
code should voice correctly if a language phrase (i.e. ID2P) is used.
The mono mode setting won't voice, however, because it uses a string constructed at runtime
directly:
{ monomode_menu_string , toggle_mono_mode },
Therefore, LANG_FM_PRESET_EDIT and LANG_FM_PRESET_DELETE should be
voiceable by just adding voice tags, should they not?
The other cases I mentioned are, of course, not possible without adding
extra code.

Jamie
