Hi, I will be more than happy to test the utility as and when new versions
come out that try to fix accessibility problems.
However personally I don't use the utility for the simple reason that I
build my rockbox from source in order to incorporate a lot of patches and to
generate my own voice files.
Though the last time I looked at the utility I found it to be unuseable none
of the dialogs or buttons were read, in the case of buttons jaws just said
button with no identification as to what they were.

Can you please explain what you mean by the above statement? as I don't
understand what you mean perhaps paste me in an example of what you are
talking about?
