    So I just got a used iPod shuffle 4th gen and everything works, except I can't enable VoiceOver for it. I check the option to enable VoiceOver and press Apply, and it asks me to download and install the VoiceOver update. I agree and it appears to download, but then gives me the error, "iTunes was unable to install the VoiceOver Kit. An unknown error occurred (1701)." I have a MacBook Air running the current iTunes and the iPod's software is up to date as well.

    After searching around the internet for a while for a fix, I've been unsuccessful, and came here. Any ideas? Anyone have the VoiceOver Kit for Mac I could try?


    Thanks in advance!

    Count me in! VoiceOver is borked on my shuffle after installing Mavericks. The update will not install - I get the same error.

    Will follow this thread for solutions!

    We don't need it, it's an old update from 2011 that is showing up as an error.

    VoiceOver will not activate on the shuffle though, so the update is necessary to enable VoiceOver for it. Without it checked all it will do is tell you the playlists on the iPod. VoiceOver will allow you to hear the name of the song, artist, etc.

    I manage to get my voice over working by booting up an old installation of snow leopard. I used the same version of iTunes as mavericks uses and it worked straight away. So this must be a mavericks issue

    Same here: managed to successfully install VoiceKit 1.4.1 on a Shuffle 4G using Mountain Lion with iTunes 10.6.3 - had to wipe a spare 10.9 MacBook and re-install ML, but it was totally worth it :)

    Same issue here, tried via windows partition- no problems, However after enabling voicekit via windows and then connecting via mac iTunes it gives some glitches and voiceover kit disables by its own. Report to Apple, doing everyday
