New iPod Nano Offers Spoken Menus & Adjustable Font Sizes

The new iPod nano (4th generation) features spoken menus to allow users to browse and select songs without viewing the screen. Instead, a synthesized voice speaks the names of menus, songs, and artists.
The iPod nano can also be connected to a Mac or PC with iTunes 8, which now offers a new option to enable these spoken menus on the computer. iTunes 8 has the capability to create spoken descriptions for the contents of the iPod nano using text-to-speech software.

The new iPod nano also features a font size setting which allows viewers a choice of standard or large font sizes. Similarly, both the iPod classic and iPod nano feature high-resolution LCD displays with adjustable brightness settings that make them easy to read even in low-light conditions.
