Is it possible to change language used for reading song album/artist/title for certain songs? I.e. when I use slovak as default iPod nano language, but I have songs with english titles, I would like to hear those in english. I think this was available for previous iPod nanos, but I cannot find it in iTunes when syncing songs to 6th gen nano.

Update: This is how Options panel looks when I right-click on song stored on my iPod Nano (6th gen):

iTunes Options panel

VoiceOver language is not there :-(

Right click on the song (you can select more than one), select "Get Info", choose the Options tab, and pick English for the voice over language.

Screenshot of the Get Info panel

If you don't see this in your info panel it means that the VoiceOver Kit is not installed: Follow the instructions on this KB Article to download and install it.

However those instructions do work on the Shuffle and the 5th generation Nano, but I just tried my daugther's 6th generation Nano and the check box is not there. Sorry.

Thank you. This is exactly what I remembered, unfortunately there isn't "VoiceOver Language" field in my iTunes. See my updated question for screenshot. –  Peter Štibraný Nov 23 '10 at 17:54
    
VoiceOver still works fine though, it just isn't enabled in iTunes anymore, but inside iPod Nano itself. I think new iPod Nano 6th gen now generates voice messages on the fly. –  Peter Štibraný Nov 23 '10 at 18:01
    
Do you have the "iPodVoiceOver.framework" in "/Library/Application Support/iTunes"? I've added instructions on how to install the VoiceOver Kit. –  eric Nov 23 '10 at 21:06
    
Sorry, just checked with a 6th generation Nano, the checkbox to enable voice over is not there. Worth a try maybe is to plug an iPod that support voice over to force install the kit and see if the individual song selection shows up and works with the Nano... –  eric Nov 23 '10 at 21:21
    
interesting idea. Will try that when I have a chance. –  Peter Štibraný Nov 23 '10 at 22:17
