Rockbox 3.4 on San disk e 280 accessible plugins and voice

Hello Rockbox users. I just updated my San disk e280 to the latest Rockbox v. 3.4. Everything went smooth. Thanks to all who worked so hard to give us such a great update. I am blind and using voice with the San disk e280. I play a couple of instruments so was very interested in the new plug in which assists with the tuning of an instrument. Not expecting speech ( hopefully one day might be added to the plugin) this plugin maid a sound then crashed my player. I did a couple of resets and all is back and well. OK I did not learn so went back into the plug ins and tried the metronome plug in. To my great delight ) without using speech) this plugin worked and was easy to control. Thank you to the Creator(s) of this plugin. OK here's the questions. Are there any other plugins ( blind users) can use? Sometimes speech( tho much desired) does not have to be active in the plugin to be accessible by blind users. The metronome plugin is an excellent example. The Rockbox manual indicates what the variou
s plugins are but does not give instructions on how to use each one. Is the instruction given when the plugin is active? Is there any place where you can read about how each plugin works? Example I just played around with the metronome. Then by mistake discovered how it worked.
Thanks and Take Care,
