The idea sounds good.

Femonspeak soundss also good. I will look on this.

I hope my idea is simple. many Any users use a braille display and
speech to access the vdr. Is it possible to create a femon skin which
show the information in plain text on the OSD? E. g. the developer of
the lastfm-plugin has include a function. You can change between
graphic and text display. If you select the text version all
informations (title, track etc.) can read with an braille display. The
plugin also use a function to select the refresh rate of the display.
If you select "0" you can always refresh the display manual. The
femon plugin IMHO needs a simular function.

What do you means? It is possible?
