RE: A humble suggestion for voice UI improvement

Good idea, I don't think that f3 is used in rockbox is it? certainly
not to do anything that I've ever done. The only problem with the
suggestion is, that it would have to be a keystroke that was possible
on the players too, which don't have the f keys.

Subject: A humble suggestion for voice UI improvement


While I am not blind, it occurs to me that a great many blind users
are
having the same difficulties with voice.

Perhaps a keyboard shortcut could be added to rockbox to enable voice
definitively -- something along the lines of On-F3. Then, no matter
what,
if after holding On-F3, you don't hear sound, the problem is
definitely
with your configuration.

Perhaps, as an extension to this idea, there could be a very small
voice
UI file added to the standard distribution with a few spoken error
strings. Off the top of my head, "Voice File Not Found", and "Voice
File
Invalid" would probably be good starting points. This would allow
blind
users to much more effectively diagnose their problems and come to the
mailing list armed with more accurate information without having to
ask
for sighted assistance. The additional bloat to non-voice UI users
would
be minimal.

All the best,
