iPod Shuffle 4th Gen 2 Gb VoiceOver

iPod Shuffle 4th Gen 2 Gb VoiceOver: The public being less than enthusiastic about the iPod shuffle 3rd Generation, Apple engineers turned to the 2nd generation design with clickable ring buttons. But iPod Shuffle 4th Gen was smaller than the second model and preserved the VoiceOver function from the iPod Shuffle 3rd generation with action button on top. The player can speak the name of songs, artists and playlists in 14 languages and boasts the Genius Mixer function as well. That is, Genius can compile a playlist picking up similar songs. The housing is offered in five colors — silver with a black click wheel ring and blue, orange, pink, and green with a white click wheel ring. There’s only one 2 Gb version for all colors with battery life up to 15 hours.

How to Use VoiceOver

iPod shuffle can help provide more control over your playback options by speaking track titles and artist names, and announcing playlists for you to choose from. VoiceOver also tells you battery status and speaks other messages. To hear these announcements, enable VoiceOver in iTunes. You can enable VoiceOver when you first set up iPod shuffle, or do it later. VoiceOver is available in selected languages. You set VoiceOver options on the Summary tab in iTunes. The following tasks describe how to turn on and customize VoiceOver.

To enable VoiceOver when you set up iPod shuffle:

  1. Connect iPod shuffle to your computer.
  2. Follow the onscreen instructions in iTunes. The Enable VoiceOver option is selected by default.
  3. Click Continue.
  4. In the Summary pane, under Voice Feedback, choose the language you want from the Language pop-up menu. This sets the language for your spoken system messages and playlist names, as well as many of the song titles and artist names. Important note:  To pick a different language for specific tracks, select them in iTunes, choose File > Get Info, choose a VoiceOver language from the pop-up menu in the Options pane, then click OK.

How to Hear Track Info

VoiceOver can speak the current track title and artist name while you’re listening to iPod shuffle.

Hear info for the current track:

  • Press the VoiceOver button during playback. You hear the current track title and artist name. You can use VoiceOver to navigate to another title.

Navigate using track info:

  • If iPod shuffle is playing, press the VoiceOver button to hear info for the current track; press Next/Fast-forward to skip to the next track and hear its info; press Previous/Rewind to move to the previous track and hear its info.
  • If iPod shuffle is paused, press the VoiceOver button to hear info for the current track; press Next/Fast-forward to hear info for the next track; press Previous/Rewind to hear info for the previous track. Press the VoiceOver button or Play/Pause to play the track.

How to Change Playlists

When VoiceOver is enabled, you can hear the playlist names and choose any playlist you’ve synced to iPod shuffle. If audiobooks or audio podcasts are synced to iPod shuffle, their titles are also read as part of the playlist menu. If VoiceOver is disabled in iTunes, playlists are identified by numerical order (for example,“Playlist 1, Playlist 2,” and so on), rather than by name.

The playlist menu announces items in this order:

  • The current playlist (if applicable).
  • “All Songs”(playlist of all the songs on iPod shuffle).
  • All playlists, including Genius playlists, in alphabetical order.
  • All Genius Mixes, in alphabetical order.
  • All podcasts, in alphabetical order.
  • All iTunes U collections, in alphabetical order.
  • All audiobooks, in alphabetical order

Miscellanea

  • Unlike the previous models, especially the unlucky 3rd generation one, iPod shuffle 4th generation shows excellent results with hi-fi semi-professional headphones. There’s no hiss between tracks and the sound is richer. It’s not the top but acceptable result for audio player that small.
