It gets even more mysterious: After applying your latest
updates, all entries of the main menu are spoken again, but now
one entry which worked before does not!

This is:

(General Settings/Playback)

- FFwd/Rewind

>> (Sound Settings)

>> - Channels: Karaoke

I guess not. At least I never used a different setting than
simple "Stereo".

All other entries and values are now spoken properly, if I did
not overlook something. How did you manage to get your voice
file smaller every time you added entries?!
