handle multiple keys at once, with a few exceptions like the ON button
on the iriver H100/H300.

I can see how that may be a problem when the voice is turned off.
However, you can rely on the fact that the menus don't wrap when you
hold the up/down buttons. Therefore you can make sure that you are on
