Vision
Music lovers who are blind or vision-impaired can now enjoy iTunes and iPod nano in an entirely new way thanks to the latest version of iTunes and the new iPod nano (5th generation). iTunes 9 is screen-reader friendly. On a Mac using Mac OS X Leopard or Snow Leopard, iTunes is compatible with VoiceOver. On a PC using Windows XP or Windows Vista, Apple recommends Window-Eyes 7.0 by GW Micro. And because iPod nano (4th generation or later) has optional spoken menus, you can easily find and play the music you want to hear. Spoken Menus on iPod nano (4th generation or later)

iPod nano (4th generation or later) — the world’s most popular music player — includes spoken menus that let visually impaired users browse and select songs without viewing the screen. Instead, you’ll hear a synthesized voice speaking the names of menus, songs, and artists.

To take advantage of spoken menus, you need:

iPod nano (4th generation or later)
iTunes 8 or later
Mac OS X v10.4.11 or later
Windows Vista or Windows XP Home or Professional (Service Pack 3 or later)

Hi Dog2, welcome to the forum and many thanks for the link to the assistive software!  

I'm sure that there will be a number of people on here that will find the software and the website link very useful.  Do you have any experience in using this software?  If so what?  We would appreciate your comments on this if possible. Very Happy

I used this software when I was younger, but I've now outgrown it. If you are young this software works well and it is slightly customisable for your needs. Very Happy
