What is AAC?
AAC means "Advanced Audio Coding", and it is considered to be the actual "state of the art" in general audio coding and the successor of MPEG-1/2 Layer III / MP3 in the multimedia standard MPEG-4 that uses MP4 as the container format for all kinds of content.

The main page shows the actually opened audio file, and the progress of the playback.
You can change the volume by pressing the joystick up or down.
Fast forward and rewind: press the joystick left or right while holding down the ABC / / SHIFT button.
Press the joystick right to see the list of audio files on the phone.

List of audio files
All files on the phone are listed here. However, the search for audio files may take some time, the process is indicated by the rotating circle at the bottom of the screen.

Playlist repeating: repeat the playlist or stop when all files have been already played.
After a track ends: songs come in a random order after each other, or normally, or the playback stops.
Bluetooth headset: switch this on and restart the program if you want to use your Bluetooth headset.
Screen always on: the screen will not go to standby when playing.
ID3 charset: you can display speacial accented characters in the title/author of MP4 files. For Latin-1, use ISO 8859-1; the list of common character sets are listed in help.
