Also, it would be nice to be able to here the WPS at a press of a button
I.E. if you play a song, and want to know what the title is, etc.

That would help allot.
Seems that Rockbox used to do that about a year or 2 ago, and something
was
done which prevented the item from being spoken when a menu was opened
up. Glenn
