I have a few feature requests for this player which will
make the player accessible for blind people:
- Using eSpeak as a speech synthesizer. so there are no
voice files needed anymore. advantages are that text files
can be read out loud in many different languages, id3-tags
can be read and everything which is on the screen. very
versatile. also vry usable for sighted people to listen to
a text file for example a book or manal.

And another thing which would be nice but is not because
of accessibility:
- Recording audio and a line in jack.
