A further note on voice labelling.

What I am finding is that when I move from one folder to another by pressing
down arrow, I hear almost all of the folder name. However when I press down
arrow again, I hear the end part of the previous folder name then most of
the folder name I am on.

So for example, if I had two folders, one entitled the beatles and one
entitled cold play, if I press down arrow neospeech will say "the beatle",
and if i press down arrow again it will say "s cold pla". Is this expected
behaviour please?
