It seems to me that in the same way a game would produce sound, the menus
could generate sound too.
I don't know if the games on the jukebox play sounds , perhaps some of the
JBR gamers can help out with this great idea.
This kind of thing would allow the sighted to drive more safely.

Several of my blind friends have archos recorder units and were wondering
whether there is a way to get some sort of audio feedback on what is on the
display.
I suspect the units do not have a PC speaker, but it might be possible to
play back some pre-recorded mp3 messages in response to certain conditions.
For example, a series of voice prompts could be used to guide someone with
setting
options. I suppose this could be extended to spelling filenames.

If such a project were to be undertaken, one of my first questions is where
to store the voice prompts for fast access. Storing each prompt in a
separate mp3 file and playing it as needed is a simple approach but perhaps
storing the prompts in a single file or region on disk and accessing the
prompts via a table might be faster.

I'm open to any comments at this point as I've just begun to think about
this project.

Thanks.
Chris
