Subject: Re: file query again.

Re: file query again.

From: Hamish Mackenzie <hamish_at_mackenzieoz.com>
Date: 2006-06-27

Hold down the button at the bottom of the wheel for a couple of seconds and
it will stop the unit playing and rockbox will start to speak. A quick
press of the bottom button only pauses it but a longer one stops playback
and you can navigate around.
