Voice UI big steps forward

Hi, I'm testing now yesterday's build, and the voice features grow fast...
Thanks everybody and especially Joerg.

Just a couple of things I noticed:

To me the spelling modus is very useful, perhaps more handy than the
.dirname.mp3, since it allows us also to browse plugins, cfg files etc.
Joerg, I noticed that the first letter gets often swallen, and the first
letter when browsing a list in alfabetical order is I'd say the most
important. Would it be possible perhaps to avoid this by inserting some
milliseconds pause before the first letter, or I don't know how this could
be done technically, since I don't know the cause of this behaviour.

The spelling, I think, could also be quicker, but this is probably
connected with the length of the automatically generated "letter" mp3, isn't
it? If so, for the letters, someone could also trim the various 24 25
segments mannualy, as to provide better handling of the spelling, since
they won't never change. I could do this, If I have either the wave files or
the existing files, but in mp3 format.

When in number modus, it would be useful, if, by pressing stop, the system
would spell the file or the folder, or read the .dirname.mp3 file if present.

When in spelling modus, the extension of the file is still spelled, wouldn't
it be possible to pronounce it as mp3?

When hovering, Joerg, I think that having 2 options, hovering, like the
present, and quick hovering, that would soon say the .dirname.mp3 file would
be preferable, since I noticed that I usually end up waighting for it and my
HDD continues to spinn for nothing.

Did someone succede in finding a solution to modify the script as to
generate .dirname.mp3 files with an existing sapi 4 italian synthesizer?

        Bye and thanks again.
