Hi all!
*Good day Mr. Linus!

This question is primarily directed towards the blind community, who
rely on the voice to operate the player.

**Your not kidding dude!

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?

**I love the idea! Just so all the crying doesn't begin, I would suggest
that you add the ability to turn it on or off from the voice settings menu.

Nice thought...rocker

Linus
