Personally I would love something like this and was going to write to the
list to suggest it.
I'd like something also that when you hold in the select button on say, an
Iriver H140 from the file browser, there would be a file properties dialog.
It would say the size of it in megabites or gigabites if necessary, and the
length of it.
The voicing can already support saying the words megabites and gigabites of
course, since it does this when you go to the rockbox info menu and it tells
you available disk space. I'm actually wondering now I come to write this,
why it definitely hasn't been implemented sooner than this?
Perhaps I'm stupid and it's already on the screen when you highlite a file,
but of course speech wouldn't read that, as it reads only the file name at
present, so wasn't deemed necessary by the developers.
Anyone have any news on this?

| Hi Guys,
| As we know, some developers have created a patch to provide voice input
| shutting down and turning on a player. I did not think such things were

| from the WPS, particularly elapsed and total time. One of the major
| about listening to podcasts on the device for those who rely on the voice
| interface is that we have no idea of the total time of our file. The only
| to hear the elapsed time of a file is to bookmark it and then listen to
| elapsed time of the bookmark. What do you all think about this "voice
| option?
