No problem Joerg, just trying to find bugs and help...

Does someone uses the "on enter" option? I find it better while hovering...

well... what about this? 2 options:

1. spins up the disk, plays the tbx file if present, says the folder number if the file is not present, and spells the item by pressing the stop button.
2. energy save: doesn't spin up the disk, says just folder number while hovering, and upon pressing stop, when requested, spins up the disk and plays the tbx file if present, or spells it if not present.

Wouldn't it be OK for most of users?

We could make a small string that reproduces a short sound? couldn't we
like: tipp!?
