Hi Jackie,


I am not Brian, but one advantage is clear.  You don't have to connect your
4th gen Ipod to another device to make it talk, and the voices on the Itel
are dreadful.  Nice to be able to choose the SAPI voice you want that your
Ipod uses.


By the way Brian, thoroughly enjoyed the Podcast, but you only covered music
unfortunately.  I would have liked to see how the Ipod handled Podcasts, and
even movies.


I have ordered my own now, so will soon find out <Smile>.


All the best

Hi Brian


Purely out of interest then, which do you prefer, the I-Tell or the fourth
generation Nano?  In simplistic usability terms, which do you think works

Subject: [access-uk] Podcast on Talking iPod Nano



During this past weekend, I produced a podcast on the new Apple iPod Nano
4th generation which includes the ability for track/artist names and menu
items to be spoken.  Previous episodes of the podcast also include a review
of the i-Tel product from Cobolt Systems which connects to many of the iPod
products to give speech prompts.


So if you are not subscribed to our podcast, which previously has covered
events such as Sight Village, it may well be worth subscribing to obtain
these additional articles we have.


You can either go to our blog at



or you can subscribe direct to the podcast feed at
