I don't have an Archos myself, but looking at a screeshot of the recorder
in the manual, I came up with what should be all characters. I also
figured out the larger layout for the iRiver H100 series in case anyone
needs it. I'm not sure if the H300 series has a different layout though,
since it has an even larger screen.

I'll put both layouts at the end of this message and in two text files on
the web:

Archos link:
http://www.abo.fi/~fbjon/rockbox_vk_archos.txt

iRiver link:
http://www.abo.fi/~fbjon/rockbox_vk_iriver.txt

Those text files and this mail should be UTF-8 encoded, just so you know,
if something doesn't work. I'll also put them in the BlindFAQ on the
rockbox.org wiki. There's a lot of highly unusual characters in the iRiver
layout though, I haven't heard of any language needing e.g. a paragraph
sign.

Regards,
  Frej Bjon

Here are both the layouts:

Archos:

ABCDEFG !?" _at_#$%+´
HIJKLMN 789 &_()-`
OPQRSTU 456 §|{}/<
VWXYZ.,0123 ~=[]*>

iRiver:

ABCDEFG abcdefg !?" _at_#$%+´
HIJKLMN hijklmn 789 &_()-`
OPQRSTU opqrstu 456 §|{}/<
VWXYZ., vwxyz.,0123 ~=[]*>
