Don't know if something like this has been requested before but it has been discussed on the mailing list. I'm blind myself and therefore, using rockbox only with the voice UI. It would be nice to have beeping notifications whilst starting and stoping a record . I have a sansa e280 and obviously, there's no disk spinning indicating that the audio clip is being recorded. with my iaudio, i can suppose it has begun because I feel the disk working. but if we would like to record a conference or someting with a flash based player, we haven't any clues which indicate that everything is working properly. It could be for example a long beep when the recording starts, two short beeps when it's ended and some kind of noise when it's paused. Do you think it's technically possible?

This task depends upon

This would be nice. It seems it isn't possible unfortunetly. I wrote a small patch to do this a couple of weeks a go but it didn't work. I will ask on the mailing list to see if I can get more help with it.

Maybe we could somehow make it do this?

It keeps adding the comment sorry.
Basically I am trying to say:
beep then start recording. if you want to stop the recording. stop recording beep twice. I don't know how we would do it for pause and resume.
Is what I am saying possible? I will have another go at this patch later.

Also is it possible to beep when rec is paused? And the reason I had a certain order for everything was so it wouldn't beep when recording. I don't think you could make it beep when recording. And if you have external speakers you might get the beep in the recording.
