Hi. No, not really. Sometimes especially with 3 hour long files, such as
radio shows, audio books, movies etc, if you know where you stopped the file
on your pc and you want to cary it on using your player, it is great to jump
to perhaps 10 seconds before hand.
Especially I think anyway, since being blind you will never know at what
time the file is running at, because currently, speech does not say current
time of track.
I don't know how long Rockbox takes to fastforward to for example, 135
minutes and 15 seconds. It maybe fast if you can see what you are doing,
but for us, we would have to stop, listen for 10, 15 dseconds, fast forward
again, stop, listen for 10, 15 seconds, rewind, well you get the picture.
With the jump to time, you start the file as normal, press the context key,
go to jump to time, scroll to the hours, go to the right.scroll to minutes,
go to the right. Scroll to seconds, and hit ok/play, etc, just like setting
Also, if you are about to stop your file and wish to cary on listening when
you get back to your PC, for blind users especially, you can use the jump to
time dialog to know exactly where you are at this very moment. Then you go
to winamp, or whatever media player of choice, and cary on listening, after
you have entered the time that Rockbox gave you.
