iPod nano 5G VoiceOver-compatible adapter
Griffin Technology has announced a new VoiceOver-compatible adapter for Apple's latest iPod nano 5G and iPod shuffle 3G. The Headphone Control Adapter with VoiceOver support connects to the user's headphones, enabling them to listen to spoken information such as the artist, track or playlist. The adapter works as an inline remote-control and can be used to control playback with any iPod model that supports transport controls, including the new iPod touch or iPod classic.
The Headphone Control Adapter is compatible with any pair of headphones, and can work as a controller for car stereos that have an auxiliary audio input. With the new control feature users can manage both pause and play functions, as well as the volume control on media players that support VoiceOver technology.
The adapter is planned for release in fall of 2009 and will have a price tag of $20.
