Hi Tim,

thanks a lot for the description of the X5. The description is good
understandable, but some things aren't still clear to me :(.

When I play a file and press the joystick twice, playing speed turns
down and finaly the player stops. Is this a bug or an feature? After the
described action unfortunatly I cant get speech output to work further
on, maybe the player is pausing or something like that. Can someone
explain ehwats happing please?

Do I start recording if the button is pressed longer or how does this

>play/pause/stop button: self explanatory

If I play a file and press this button, the loudness turns down and the
player stops playing the file. Am I in pause mode now or have I really
stopped playing the file? Unfortunatly also after this action speech
output is suppressed and I can't get it to work :(. Can you explain it
more detailled please? When can I get to the pause mode and when is
playing stopped?

I also noticed, that the reaction time of the speech output is really
bad if I navigate fastly through the menus or the folders and files.
Some entries are only otuputed, if I navigate up and down a few times
:(. It looks like the speech is not interupted propperly, if the
joystick is moved. also I have the feeling that interuption is not
working correctly, if I stop playing a file. That might cause the
trouble with speech output still :(.

Thanks a lot for any tipps that solve the problems described above!
Unfortunatly I can't help with programming but I'd be happy to help with
the development for the iAudio in any other way that is possible /

Kind regards,
