Thomas and Alex,

How about this?  When the cord is plugged in either via usb or a regular charger the voice say Charging and reads the percentageof the charge.  So for instance it would say "Plugged in, charging from 25^%."  When you unplug how about just saying "Unplugged."

Hi list.
I have another suggestion for committal.
That is the last two files I uploaded to fs #8006
I like the last version there specifically because not only does it give
a beep when the charger is removed or inserted into the player, but the
beep_tune patch means that a short sequence of beeps is played so you can
instantly know if you accidentally pulled the charger out or when its in
that the player is charging.
As otherwise you get no feedback at all to indicate that charging is
so you could easily find yourself trying to charge your player on a wall
socket that isn't working and not realise this. But fs #8006 would tell
that the player wasn't charging if you didn't hear the beep.


We shouldn't overuse the beep. The more you use it, the less it means.
Announcing pluging in or out could be very well done using voice. That
could even differentiate between USB connection or charging only.

Best regards.


How about this.
