Some how when certain images are tagged with text, jaws will describe
pictures. I'm not sure how it works, but I can find out. Actually, one of
the voices Rockbox has sounds like jaws, I chose that one. I forgot what it
was called. LOL Anyway what I'm trying to ask is how will rockbox handle
the pictures? Will it just be silent when your moving through them? Think
about it, several blind people like me, like being able to go through
photos, or play movies on the players, some people who are blind have
enough vision to see some, they just need stuff magnified.

yes, the photos would be in color, but I doubt that it is reasonable
to implement (or to try to) a text-to-speech-engine on rockbox.
furthermore, that image-analyse-thingy sounds far too complicated for
a small device.
Unfortunately, the Jaws-website does not specify any required hardware
specifications. that would it make easier to estimate.
