Subject: End of list beep

End of list beep

I am using rockbox with voice files i have each file with a voice tag, I
want to get to a song beginning with S. Lets say we have 1000 songs, I
can scroll and then stop periodically to listen to my current location
(slow). I will know when i am near or far away from the song i want.

We take one step back and say that going to the end of the list first
makes our song quicker to find as you are close to your target to

The issue is do user scroll through forward alphabetically (as i do) or
do they have the intelligence to scroll upwards to the end of the list
straight away.

I do it forward as a clockwise rotation on the E200 is more comfortable
to achieve than anticlockwise. So a beep at the end of the list could
come in very useful.

It is a time saver, if you do not understand load random stuff onto your
player, add voice tags and give it a whirl and see how much slower
navigations is. (And no peeking) ;)
