I bought my iPod Nano 3 days ago after wanting one for a long time, and I am very pleased with it, I got an 16gb '(product) Red' one from the store.
I left it on at home all day today, and when I came to use it, something weird happened.
I turned the screen on and this voice in my earplugs told me the name of the song and the artist.
I flicked through a few of the other songs, but all that I heard were the songs, however when I went back onto that song my nano told me the song details again.
I knew my nano had some kind of voice over, so I went into settings, but it was off.
I turned my nano on and off, went back to that song, and again, I heard the details being spoken to me.
So I wondered if turning VoiceOver on and then off would help, so I went to turn it on.
Unfortunately, VoiceOver on the nano is, in my opinion, extremely complicated to use!
The only other device I have is an iPod touch, which I've barely had any problems with, and I've never had to turn on VoiceOver on any Apple devices as my hearing is fine.
A message told me some of the controls would be different once VoiceOver was turned on, but it didn't specify which ones, so I turned it on anyway.
The screen refuses to slide back to the home screen, it's hard to select the things you want to, and I had no way of turning it off again.
After realising the help service on the phone had closed for the night I searched online for help, but couldn't find any, except for help for shuffles.
Here's how I turned it off:
I opened up iTunes, connected my iPod nano to the computer, and once it had finished syncing I disconnected my nano, as I knew that it would return to the home screen.
After a few tries I managed to get onto settings and turn VoiceOver off.
The only way I could find to get to the home screen was to keep connecting and disconnecting my nano until it let me press the right things on the screen and turn it off!
I was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience and knows how to get back to the home screen without having to mess around with connecting your nano to iTunes.
I've had quite a bit of experience with Apple products, though I didn't use my iPod touch for a while as it was too big for me to carry around with no pockets, so I know how to use my nano. I didn't turn on VoiceOver or turn on any weird settings as I'm dedicated to knowing how to work it inside out, so if you know why my nano has done this, or have any theories, I'd be happy to hear them.
Maybe I could have searched online more, but I just thought it would be easy to make a discussion to see if it would help me in any future difficulties. If anyone can show me a link to any similar discussions, that would be great.
Thanks for reading!
