FS#6083 - Announcing tracks (DJ feature)

This patch was meant to add a DJ type feature, that would announce each song if a “.talk” clip exists for it. Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as calling talk_file() each time the track changes, because that breaks playback because of CPU inadequacy. Works mostly fine for WAV files though.

The solution is probably to halt playback until the clip has been played, but that’s beyond me.

I have not added a settings interface to this, since the feature is really very incomplete. I’d love if someone would pick it up from here though.

i think this can be closed…..over 2 years old, doesnt apply, and i think nobody needs it. and according to rashers description its working only for .wav-files.

I respectfully disagree. The code is mostly trivial - should be fairly easy to apply by hand and I think this feature would be reasonably useful for blind users. I still wish someone with some more playback-engine fu would pick this up and get it in shape for inclusion.

Of course, if everyone else is against it, it should be closed, but I don't think your reasons are enough to close it.
