Another feature to this that would be useful, is to set the step rate, like
we can with the fast forward.
I noticed with my Archos, that it took many presses to increase only a
little bit.
Although this fine adjustment is important, I think that for most instances,
we might want the pitch to move in bigger steps.

Thanks for the info about the speed info not being stored in the cfg file,
that is a shame. I also agree that some sort of reset to normal capability
would be useful as would adding the info to the cfg file if this were

I have been using this function on my H340 and am really enjoying being
able to crank up my speed a bit but was wondering if there is any
possibility that might allow for the maximum speed to be increased because
although I am enjoying what there is now I could still quite happily go
faster than the maximum increase allowed. Many blind people are used to
listening to our screen readers at 100 miles per hour and I would love to be
able to go faster than is now allowed.

Cheers and keep up the good work.
