Hi, Glenn.
        I've never heard of this, but I don't see the point anyhow for
accessibility, since the Ipod uses touch sensitive buttons, so you get no
tactile feedback, or so I'm told.
        If the menus talk, then there'd have to be a way to operate the
unit.

 It has a way to go, but it is already usable.
