I agree. "Thumbnail" is the wrong word to use in the
menus for this feature. While the word "thumbnail"
might be a correct word to describe a short audio file
such as the files that Talkbox uses, it is a very
general term not specifically related to what Talkbox
does and it doesn't clearly convey what the feature is
when the user sees it in the settings menu.

The menu item should be labeled something like
"Audible Directories", "Talking Directories", "Play
Directory ID Files", or some variation.

The real problem is coming up with something that
correctly describes the feature in the setting menu
that isn't too long.
