Hi Linus and Anna

I too am blind and use a Nano and can see what Anna is talking about. With
the new builds I can find out what file is playing by doing a quick push of
the centre of the wheel and it is reported correctly but I think what Anna
is refering to which I also miss in the new builds is that if I was
listening to a file and did a 2 second press of the play button to stop the
file, with follow playlist checked, when the file stopped it would return to
the list of songs with the one I was playing highlighted and it would voice
it. It was nice to know so to speak but now this does not work. I hope I
am not misrepresenting what it was you were looking for Anna.
