Also, make sure that your voice file is up to date as is the daily build, if
you are using an old voice file, there will be no entries for that menu, as
they had not been thought of yet.

Can you name examples?

These spawn the directory browser for special directories and files. If you
have file numbering or spelling on, you should get some feedback.

The menus should be pretty complete.

We have to watch the resource consumption for the voice feature. Space in
the voice file is limited.
The F2/F3 menus are different and difficult, there is no cursor hovering
over choices, like our main menu is convenient for speaking the entries.
Voice support here would mean something like first reading instructions
which arrow key would do what (can be annoying) and then echoing the setting
you've just altered by an arrow key. Since the F2/F3 menus are in focus for
a change anyway (context sensitive menu and customizable menu), we better
wait until this is done.
