Perhaps? Good idea's man but lets not forget that their are other on-going
development projects. While I am thrilled beyond belief with the voice UI,
we can't forget that variety is the spice of life! There are plenty of
things the blind folk can catch up on now that I have the voice ui so no
hurry eh? Lets try and curve our enthusiasm. I'm going to drink my beer
now and listen to some KICK ASS rock & roll on Rockbox!

Subject: Voice UI,numers for folders and files?

Hi', perhaps I'm speeding things up a bit, but, would it be possible now
that all menues speak, and that the mp3 for the numbers are already in the
"english.voice" file, to have a function that counts all the items in a
folder and pronounces a correspondent number for each item when the arrows
are moved?

Using the single letters than, would it be possible to spell an item be it
either a folder or a file? this function could be called by let's say a
combination of two keys. But this is perhaps to much of a phantasy world?

As for all voice settings, I think that turning them off by default would
be better, given that "thanks God", sighted people are much more than we
are, provided blind have a reasonable way to activate them, I don't "see"
any problem there.

As for the spoken menues, I noticed that all the time and date settings,
all the timer functions, sleep timer and so on, ar not voiced. I didn't
also succeed in making a bookmark, and finding it then, browsing the list.
In my unit, also the whole debug menue is not voiced yet.

If not the whole debug menu, it would be interesting to have the
possibility to here the battery status in a percentage value.
