Unfortunately after doing more testing, I have found there are some problems
about using the g key to brows the graphics and locate player names that
the problem is that one player does not appear to have tagged graphics, or
at least if it does there is something wrong with it as one player is not
shown when I use the g key to jump to the different graphical elements for
the names.
the player that this appears to affect is
Archos Player/Studio

OK, but I don't think this would be obvious to a rockbox newbie, especially
one who is visually impaired, I think that even though they are identical
the links should be labeled so you have one of each. Because I think it
would be quite easy for someone to not realise that the manuals were

What do you mean the table is a grid? when I visualise a table, I imagine
you have column headings either going across the top or down the side, and
then next to that other columns containing information.

there are other problems if you try to use jaws table keystrokes to navigate
the manuals, this being that for some reason table keystrokes only work till
you get to the gigabeat row, and then they just stop working you can't go
down the page any further using table keystrokes. Using table navigation
keystrokes you can't get to the mrobe100 column.
