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.”
