Whilst playing a track, the voice will sometimes randomly overlap the music, reading out the filename of the track at the rate of about one character every 1-1.5 seconds. once the name is read out, playback continues normally with no overlap.

Related to this, there is often a lag between menu navigation options being performed and the corresponding voice commentary. E.g, after just playing a track an pausing it, I can go into Menu, then General settings, then System, and only at this point will the voice announce the current option. I'm lucky that I'm only partially sighted and able to vaguely see the selection line on-screen. I can imagine that many blind users would imagine that nothing had happened, when in fact they were already navigating the menus before being alerted to this fact.

This task depends upon
