Default Audio interface for easier navigating on Android & iOS?

Knowing that smartphone/tablet screens can be hard to see out on the water, there is a new audio interface being discussed for the free SailTimer charting app (on iOS and now planned for Android too).

It will announce results like: “Wind speed 7.8 knots. Boat speed 4.2 knots. Heading 192 degrees. Bearing starboard 17 degrees would save 1 hour 12 minutes.” It would do this at set intervals, or when parameters changed by set amounts. No more screen; it is just like having a voice in your head.

There is a crowdfunding campaign here to assess interest and fund the development. What do you see as pros & cons or features that should be considered?

Interesting idea, good luck with that.
