RE: Media Enquiry

Okay, thanks Daniel. I'm currently looking at a recently released
personal DAB/FM radio and MP3 player from a company called oono. The
product's name is the MiniDAB. In all its modes and functions the unit
relies entirely on visual menus. However, I was wondering whether
Rockbox could be installed on it. Is there something which makes a
product particularly suitable for or compatible with Rockbox? I'm
afraid I'm not massively up on the tech spec of this unit, but could
easily get technical info from the manufacturers if anyone needed to
know more.

Look forward to hearing your comments.

Ian

We're on open source project and we're all volunteers. There's no single
person or even group of persons who are particularly devoted to making
Rockbox "more user friendly for blind people". I'm afraid you might just
wait in vain for someone to contact you.

I would instead suggest that you instead just tell this list what you
want. Or possibly the development mailing list, if it is a pure
development issue you're referring to.

But hey, I don't know. Perhaps someone already contacted you.
