 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".

>"No, I don't like that. It's best to say settings menu. Sound settings.
Likewise, opening sound settings would say sound settings menu. Volume."

 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".

>"This is good, it should always say the menu you are in followed by the
currently selected item. You could probably easily put a toggle switch in
there for that so that it won't announce menu titles when navigating."

 Comments? Suggestions?
