How it works
iPod shuffle is designed not only to talk, but to say the right things. How is this possible? First, iTunes reads your song information, then uses the VoiceOver Kit to generate the announcements for the songs, artists, and playlists. Just sync your iPod shuffle with your computer and it really speaks to you.
After you sync your iPod shuffle, the voice you hear depends on which computer system you use. If you sync your iPod shuffle with a PC or with a Mac running Mac OS X Tiger, you`ll hear the English voice included in the VoiceOver Kit. And since Mac OS X Leopard and Snow Leopard have an amazing English voice built in, that`s the voice you`ll hear when you sync your iPod shuffle with a Mac running one of those operating systems.
It speaks multiple languages.
Your music library has songs from all over the world €” a love song from France, a bolero from Spain, or a pop tune from Japan. Luckily, VoiceOver speaks fluent song €” in 20 languages, to be exact.
iTunes selects the language and best voice for your song titles and artist names. It looks at song data, like the title, artist, and album information, then applies intelligent algorithms to choose the right language. For example, iTunes recognizes the song €œYa Viene el Sol by Ozomatli as a Spanish song, so your iPod shuffle will automatically speak that song title and artist in Spanish. If you prefer to hear that information spoken in another language, you can change the designated VoiceOver language for that song in iTunes.
a variety of color to choose..
