iAudio and voicing of files still causing problems

Hi Christian,

I've changed the subject of this mail to more fit the topic.

I agree with you that using the iAudio when voicing of filenames is
enabled is extremely unstable.

I'm experiencing the same problems as yourself, and hopefully the
developers will come up with something soon to resolve this.

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?

>2. The right edge

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,
