iPod Voice Controller


Prediction: voice control will be built in to all iPods within three years.

For now, you're stuck with this kludge.

On a related note (file under "real soon now"), I am so excited about being able to narrate a live streaming iPhone video that appears in real time on bookofjoeTV.


For now, you'll have to be satisfied with this item's baby step in the right direction.

From websites:

Hands-Free Voice Controller For iPod


Active or got your hands full?

Control your iPod with just your voice.

When you're jogging, wearing gloves, working out, can't see the display or just can't stop to use the iPod click wheel, the hands-free controller responds to your voice commands.

Just speak to adjust the volume, play, stop, go to the next track, go to the previous track or replay a song.

For example, saying "volume up" or volume down" increases or decreases the volume level by one step.

Ready to use out of the box and compatible with all iPod headphones, speakers and automobile audio systems that use the 3.5mm iPod headphone jack.

The device plugs into your iPod's dock connector and it draws its power from the iPod, thus requiring no batteries.

Although it recognizes English, it can be trained to recognize non-English command equivalents.


Screen features on/off indicator light.

Device offers bass enhancement.

Includes lapel clip and neck strap.

1-1/2"W x 1-1/2"H x 1/2"D.

Compatible with: 1st and 2nd generation iPod Classic; 1st and 2nd generation iPod Touch; 2nd, 3rd, and 4th generation iPod Nano; iPod Mini; 4G and 5G iPods; iPod Photo; iPod with color display


"Although it recognizes English, it can be trained to recognize non-English command equivalents" — way cool.

AHA! Another one of those peculiar post times: 1:31 PM. Hmm.
Removing back hair at your convenience, perhaps?
