.Hi all!
.This question is primarily directed towards the blind community, who
.rely on the voice to operate the player.
.Would it be helpful if the menu title is spoken when you enter a menu
.which is not directly selected by a menu item?
.My idea is this:
.If you press Menu to reach the main menu from the WPS, it would say
."Main menu", followed by the currently selected menu, for example
."Files". You then navigate to "Settings" and press SELECT. This time it
.will *not* speak the menu title, because it is obvious that you entered
.that menu, so it will directly speak the first item in the settings
.menu, "Sound Settings".
.Now you leave the Settings menu by pressing Left. This time it will say
.the menu title again, "Main menu", followed by the currently selected
.item, "Settings".
.Comments? Suggestions?

Hi Linus,

My first reaction was that this suggestion would make Rockbox needlessly verbose, but it probably would be helpful. It might be nice to have feedback when pressing Select, since sometimes this takes you to the WPS, sometimes to the file management menu, and sometimes to the context menu, depending what you were doing.
