Sorry, I have now used the version that bluebrother made available, I have
now posted information in the tracker entry regarding combo boxes.
I am just curious, why does the version of rockbox utility bluebrother made
available not have a use sapi four check box? is support for sapi four being

I was able to locate the manual screen using your directions, and it appears
to be accessible with jaws. However, although I was able to download a
manual for my player no problem, I could not open an on line version in my
browser. No matter what I pressed, I couldn't click the link to open the on
line manual.
I think I also located the info tab, but when I navigated around it, all I
was seeing was a blank field that jaws was not able to read anything from.
However, I am not running a daily build on my player it is a custom one,
would that make a difference to the info tab? I haven't posted in the
tracker task about this problem yet.

Many thanks for the information I think I no what I was doing wrong, I was
putting a / before voice.
