Hi there.
If you install rockbox on the iPod, it would completely replace the existing
software on it, meaning that the menu's would be completely different to
what they are at the moment for you.
On the plus side for blind users as I'm sure you are aware rockbox is able
to speak the menu's to you - a feature which has recently been made to work
on iPods as well.
In terms of video, rockbox doesn't currently support any video on any newer
MP3 players, but as a blind user I can't imagine any benefit you would have
anyway - and the same goes for games.
Rockbox on the iPod has come a long way, and is almost at the stage where it
is completely useable with no crashes or any erratic behaviour.
I hope this answers your question,
