Using Honda Music Link With Honda TTS
To get the most out of Honda Music Link, first install the
Honda TTS software application provided on the Honda
Music Link CD-ROM. This optional software installs on
the Mac or PC you use with your iPod. It creates voice
prompts to help you find music on your iPod, and it
allows you to shuffle songs, shuffle albums, seek/skip to
the next song/album or previous song/album, and search
playlists, albums, artists, and genres.
Honda TTS is a software application that creates text-to-
speech (TTS) files based on the information tags
attached to each song on your iPod. Once installed on
your computer, Honda TTS automatically launches every
time you connect your iPod
to your computer. It scans
the music on your iPod and
creates TTS files that contain
all of the voice prompts
Honda Music Link needs to
help you search for music.

Each song on your iPod and in iTunes
has a set of "info tags" attached to it,
like Name, Artist, Album, Year, etc.
(below left). You can edit these info

Honda TTS scans the information
contained in the Artist, Album, and
Genre info tag fields. It also scans the
names of the playlists on your iPod. It
then creates TTS files for the first letter
of every artist, album, genre, and
playlist, as well as TTS files for the
names of every artist, album, genre,
and playlist on your iPod. The TTS files
are saved in your iTunes library and as
playlists on your iPod and in iTunes.
