Subject: Re: : WPS context menu broken with AAC files again

Re: : WPS context menu broken with AAC files again

I just tried the latest CVS and one of the updated voice files on my
Nano. The iPod doesn't crash when I go into the file browser or
context menu while playing an AAC file, which is certainly an improvement.

However, the response time is very slow while an AAC file is
playing. I tried going into the context menu, increasing the pitch
significantly (to about 1.5 times normal, I think) and returning to
the WPS, then going back to the context menu to return the pitch to
normal. The first time I went into the context menu, it might take
30 seconds to get speech. Once I got speech, it worked reasonably
well and I was able to increase the pitch. After I increased the
pitch, however, I was sometimes unable to get it back to normal
without turning off the iPod. The menu started talking much more
quickly than the first time I entered the context menu, but speech
was more sluggish as I scrolled through the menu. It was often
chopped off so that I couldn't hear the end of the prompt. There was
also a lag of several seconds, I think, between when I scrolled to a
new choice and that choice was spoken. And in one file, music
playback stopped every 10 seconds or so even when I was in the WPS
instead of the context menu, as long as the pitch was at 1.5 times normal.

My battery is low at the moment - maybe that has something to do with
this. I will charge it overnight and see if there's a difference
tomorrow. But responsiveness was much better with MP3 files, so I
doubt the battery is the main problem.

Sorry to be the bearer bad news.
