Makes sense. Should shifts in the voice volume also affect cues?
Or optionally affect cues (e.g. if there's an 'auto' cue volume
then the difference between the voice-volume and 'medium' is applied
to the cue)?


Also how would cues be aligned with the voice volume, anyway? This
does seem to be important. Like, suppose my device is reading the
page in a loud environment. I've set my preferred volume ('medium')
to be loud, but the cues are all pre-recorded, so they will not be
loud. Then suppose I'm using my reader in a quiet environment. I
set the voice volume to be quiet. But the cues will still be loud.
Seems like a problem.
