Speaks well and looks goodAll speech processing is done on your device using native text-to-speech, so there are no awkward pauses.
We co-operate with other apps, pausing and resuming on interruptions such as phone calls. You can use Google Maps at the same time too.
We read out HTML emails, not just the plain text version, like other email reading apps do. A quick glance at your screen gives you the visual context of the email.
Easy to triage your emailIf the email needs action, tap and say "flag" to flag in your inbox.
If no further action is required, archive it (double tap anywhere).
To leave in your inbox, swipe to the next email (or tap and say "next").
If you don’t do anything, Speaking Email will go on to the next email.
Reply dictation, Instant reply, FYIYou can even reply and forward emails with just two taps (Premium feature).
Speech recognition technology lets you dictate your reply, which is read back to you before sending.
The “instant reply” feature is perfect for sending a quick “thanks” or “OK”.
Set up a list of colleagues, then just tap or speak the name to forward the email with the text "FYI".
Manage your email your wayEveryone manages email a bit differently.
We've tried hard to make Speaking Email simple to use and cover as many ways of working as we can.
We have many mailbox options for whether to "archive", "mark as read", move to a folder, or not to touch email on your mail server.
You can have unread only or all mail, and choose the order.
