Re: Improvements in Voice UI and a bug that remains

I'm not sure if this bug in the voice UI has been addressed yet, but I've
just finished installing rockbox on my iriver h320, and when I'm playing a
song, the menus do not speak. I'll press menu when playing a song and the
initial menus speak, however when I try to go to the sounds menu to adjust
audio properties, the player does not speka the audio settings.
