If rockbox ever gets on the ipod, I think we'd have a lot more blind users
at any rate. For one thing, ipods are a hell of a lot easier to find. For
another thing, Ipods for the most part, have a better user interface. I
personally can't wait for this to happen. Thank you to the rockbox team for
all your efforts.
