True, but one does wonder whether this inclusion of talking menus suchlike
in the official firmware means that some of the developers at Apple took
notice of Rockbox's previous efforts to improve accessibility and decided to
make them 'official' as such :)

** Seems to me there was something a few years back where Apple apparently
stole the talking menus idea from the open-source community, namely,
RockBox, and put a patton on it.
I'll bet a reference to that could be found in the archives of this list.
