VoiceOver - VoiceOver is a feature of iPods and iPhones that allows the device to speak the names of onscreen menus and other items to the user. It was introduced with the third-generation Pod Shuffle.
VoiceOver is a featured designed to make iPods usable for customers with visual impairments who can't see onscreen menus. It offers a default, computer-sounding voice. However, a preference allows users to choose more human-sounding voices installed on their computers to read the menus.
Beyond reading the contents of the screen to users, VoiceOver also allows users with visual impairments to interact with iOS devices via gesture combinations. More detail about these gestures can be found at Apple's Accessibility page.
