Iris is a small utility for OSX. It works in conjunction with a smart remote such as the Logitech Harmony One which can emulate several Apple IR remotes. The basic play/pause/skip/stop functionality will control iTunes as normal, however, additional buttons such as 0..5 will rate the currently playing track and the “info” button will speak the current track rating.

As I no longer use a Mac this project will not be receiving any further updates and is untested on any newer version of OSX than Mountain Lion.
