Sansa E200 (version 1)

Until recently it was possible to voice the current time with System -> RockBox Info -> Current time. That is no longer possible. Current time (and Current date) have been removed. Removed, not moved.

The current time and date is now VISIBLE with System -> Time & Date, but the cursor can not be moved over them - so they have been removed from the audio interface.

There are several ways out of the problem, including;

1) Classify this as a feature request rather than a bug report.

2) When Voicing is *on* allow the cursor to leave the menu items. This would have benefit of allowing the blind to "read" menu titles. IMO a significant improvement in the audio interface.

3) Add menu items "voice current time" and "voice current date" to System -> Time & Date (even when voicing is off).

Others may have better ideas.

This was prompted by the closure of  FS#9167  - current time is not voiced for a minute.
This task depends upon
