iPod nano (6th generation): How to use VoiceOver
Summary

VoiceOver describes aloud what appears onscreen, so that you can use iPod nano (6th
generation) without seeing it.

Products Affected

iPod nano (6th generation)

VoiceOver speaks in the language you specify in Accessibility settings on the iPod.

VoiceOver is available in many languages, but not all.

VoiceOver tells you about each element on the screen when you select it. When you select an element, it's enclosed by a black rectangle, and VoiceOver speaks
the name or describes the item. The enclosing rectangle is called the VoiceOver cursor. If you select text, VoiceOver reads it. If you select a control
(such as a button or switch), VoiceOver may tell you the action of the item or provide instructions (for example, "double-tap to open").

To set up VoiceOver
1. From the Home screen, tap Settings > General.
2. Tap the On/Off switch to turn VoiceOver On.
3. Tap Accessibility > VoiceOver.
VoiceOver changes the gestures used to control iPod
4. In the dialog that appears, tap OK to confirm your selection.

If you do nothing for 15 seconds, the dialog disappears, and VoiceOver is turned Off. You hear an announcement that VoiceOver is off.

When you turn VoiceOver on, you use a different set of gestures to control iPod nano. If you change your mind and want to turn VoiceOver off, double-tap
with two fingers to move the switch to Off. If you’ve navigated away from the Settings screen, you’ll need to use VoiceOver gestures to return to the setting
and turn it off.

To turn off VoiceOver on iPod nano using VoiceOver gestures
1. Swipe right or left with two fingers until you see or hear Settings.
2. Double-tap to open Settings.
3. Move your finger up or down the screen until you see or hear General, then double- tap.
4. Move your finger up or down the screen until you see or hear Accessibility, then double-tap.
5. Move your finger up or down the screen until you see or hear VoiceOver, then double-tap.

You'll hear "VoiceOver off" to confirm the setting. Now you
can use standard gestures to control iPod nano.

Note: You can also turn off VoiceOver by resetting your iPod.

VoiceOver
VoiceOver describes aloud what appears onscreen, so that you can use iPod nano without seeing the screen. VoiceOver speaks the language you specify in Accessibility settings on iPod nano.
VoiceOver is available for many languages, but not all.
VoiceOver tells you about each element on the screen as it’s selected. When an element is selected, it’s enclosed by a black rectangle and VoiceOver speaks the name or describes the item.
The rectangle is referred to as the VoiceOver cursor.
If text is selected, VoiceOver reads the text. If a control (such as a button or switch) is selected, VoiceOver may tell you the action of the item or provide instructions—for example,
“double-tap to open.”

Set up VoiceOver on iPod nano:
1 Connect earphones or headphones to iPod nano.

2 On the Home screen, tap Settings, and then tap General.

3 Flick up, and then tap Accessibility.

4 Tap VoiceOver, then flick up to set any of these options:

Speak Hints: Explains how to interact with the item in the VoiceOver cursor. You may want to turn this on to help you learn how to use iPod nano, and turn it off later.

Speaking Rate: Increases or decreases the rate of speech for VoiceOver. This does not affect the speech rate for audiobooks or podcasts.

Language: Sets the language for VoiceOver. It should match the language set for iPod nano.
5 Tap VoiceOver, and then tap the On/Off switch to turn VoiceOver On.

If this is the first time you turned on VoiceOver on iPod nano, a dialog appears.

6 Tap OK in the dialog, and then double-tap OK to confirm.

If you can’t see the screen, move your finger until you hear “OK button,” and
then double-tap with one finger.
If you do nothing for 15 seconds, the dialog disappears and VoiceOver turns off.
When VoiceOver is on, you use a different set of gestures to control iPod nano. If you change your mind and want to turn VoiceOver off, double-tap with two fingers to move the switch to Off. If you navigate away from the Settings screen, you need to use VoiceOver gestures to return to the setting and turn it off.

Turn off VoiceOver on iPod nano using VoiceOver gestures:
1 Swipe right or left with two fingers until you see or hear “Home. Settings.”

If the icons have been rearranged, or if there are more than four Home screens, you may hear something different.
2 Slide one finger around the screen until you hear “Settings.”

3 Double-tap to open Settings.

4 Slide your finger up or down the screen until you see or hear General, and then double-tap.
