>> .
>> .Would it be helpful if the menu title is spoken when you enter a menu
>> .which is not directly selected by a menu item?
>> .
>> .My idea is this:

>> .If you press Menu to reach the main menu from the WPS, it would say
>> ."Main menu", followed by the currently selected menu, for example
>> ."Files". You then navigate to "Settings" and press SELECT. This time it
>> .will *not* speak the menu title, because it is obvious that you entered
>> .that menu, so it will directly speak the first item in the settings
>> .menu, "Sound Settings".
>> .
>> .Now you leave the Settings menu by pressing Left. This time it will say
>> .the menu title again, "Main menu", followed by the currently selected
>> .item, "Settings".
>> .
>> .Comments? Suggestions?
