Using Music Link With Honda TTS
To get the most out of Music Link, first install the Honda
TTS software application provided on the Honda Music
Link CD. 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
Music Link will need to help
you search for music.

Honda TTS scans the information

playlist, as well as TTS files for the

are saved in your iTunes library and as
