A speculation demo of how the Apple watch using VO brings together Click Wheel and touch screen access found in the previous nanos to the Digital crown and screen of the watch.

In this demo, I look at the click wheel access in the iPod nano 4/5 generation, touch screen access in the iPod nano 6/7th generation (which in the 7th gen also had the Home button), and look at how this would come together with voiceover in using the Apple watch digital crown, and the touch screen of the watch.

This demo was more for myself as a bit of a record before seeing the Apple watch itself and how access will have moved on with VoiceOver.
