Well, I've seen jaws describe some pictures on certain web sites. For
example, lets say there is a picture of a lab sitting by a pool, I've seen
jaws read yellow lab infront of a pool. Now, I wrote another list asking how
this works. I'll forward a response. As for playing movies, some players
have the capability to store movies, I'd like rockbox to read the titles
when scrolling down so you can pick one, and watch it. I mean if this is a
feature on the new IRiver players.

The fact one of the voices sound familiar is most probably the fact
that jaws is installing one of the already existing

For the rest, I feel like missing something. What would you expect to
HEAR when a picture is displayed ?
