How to adjust the VoiceOver speaking rate for your iPod

Symptoms

After installing VoiceOver Kit version 1.2 in combination with iTunes 9 or later, the speaking rate of voice clips on your iPod shuffle (3rd generation) or iPod nano (5th generation) may sound too fast or too slow. This could occur if your computer Speech settings have been modified from the default "Normal settings" for the speaking rate.

Resolution

For Mac OS X v10.5 or later with iTunes 9 or later, Choose Apple () menu > System Preferences and then choose View > Speech and adjust the Speaking Rate settings. Then, sync your iPod with iTunes to update the changes to the device.

For Windows XP or Vista with iTunes 9 or later, go to the Control Panel and choose Settings > Speech and adjust the Voice speed and then click Apply to save the settings. Sync your iPod with iTunes to update the changes to the speaking rate.
