but presumably if your holding down the joystick to go to the end or
beginning of a list of files or menus, you should already know where you
want to be and what you will hear.
the speech not interrupting isn't really an issue for menus, but I don't
want to hear a massive folder name if I know that's where I was aiming for
in the first place in the file browser, but of course mine is one oppinion,
so I say let the majority rule.
