I'm new to the list. I've heard of rockbox via the help needed list run by
bill Johnson. I explained my query to them and they referred me to this
mailing list. I need the correct screen reader for my mp4 player. The shop
where I bought the mp4 player can't give me any model and make information.
All I know: its called an mp4 player but hopefully if I give you a clear
description you would be able to instruct me which screen reader to
This mp4 player can play mp3 files, it can play movies, it has a voice
recorder and radio, It has a program to read text documents and It has
games. Its about the size of 2 match boxes. It doesn't have any actual
buttons. At its top side it has a switch where I turn it on or off. I have
to use my fingernail to turn it on or off. The player is operated by using
a pad. The pad is oval shaped and has a little round circle in the middle of
the oval pad. To go to the previous or next song or to go up or down in a
menu I press the left and right side of the pad. If I want to activate the
volume control I press the down side of the pad. Pressing the top side of
the pad will activate the menu and pressing the little circle in the middle
will play or pause the music if I selected the music item in the menu.
It has 2 sockets. One for earphones and one to connect it to a pc's USB
port or to a charger.
That's how accurate I can describe it to you. I heard that all rockbox
software is freeware.
If so, please can any one direct me as to which software I should download
for this specific mp4 player.
At this stage I can easily listen to music. I copy mp3 files from my
computer onto my player and then I select music which is the first menu item
and I press play.
If I want to stop it I press the little circle. I noticed that it will pause
the song for a few seconds. In other words it keeps the player area open
for a few seconds, so if I just want to pause for a short while if someone
quickly wants to talk to me, if I'm ready again, I can just press the
middle circle and it will immediately play again. But after pausing for a
few seconds it will stop it and then I have to press the top side again and
select music and play it again but it always continues playing where it left
off even if it went out of the playing area completely. Why Ineed a screen
reader is because sometimes when I want to adjust the volume it happens
that the player skips to the next or previous song instead of making it
louder or softer. I press the bottom side twice and then I press left or
right. Because I noticed pressing bottom once does nothing either. So
sometimes I can adjust the volume and sometimes it skips to another track.
I copy various folders from my pc onto the player, so if I have a screen
reader for it, maybe I can then change its settings so that I can be able
to select a folder who's music I want to listen to, because at present it
displays all music in one list, regardless if they are put in folders on the
computer. So if I can have a screen reader for it, I can then press the
bottom side until I hear the speech says volume and then I can change the
