❝Exceptional! I have a client who has essential lost all sight. This has been the best email program I’ve been able to find for his needs. SIRI’s capabilities just didn’t cut it. But this, this software is great!❞

Willis Hargrave

❝I want to thank you for this app because my 93 year old mother is almost blind from macular degeneration. She can now listen to her emails without needing someone to read them to her.❞

Judy Gilford

❝This is the App out there from a productivity standpoint. You listen and dictate emails with ease. The app is very intuitive with its voice activation features. I estimate that it saves me probably two hours a day because I can listen and dictate emails during my morning and evening drive!❞

Allen166 (from App Store)

❝Excellent! This application is awesome and just what I have been looking for. It easily automatically configured the settings to my corporate and personal emails, performs a broad range of voice directed functions, is extremely easy to use, performs well even with significant background noise and is highly configurable.❞

Aloha Buzz (from App Store)

❝I use this App Every Day. I have trouble focusing on one task at a time. I use this app to help me with email overload. It helps me deal with triaging my email to get it to a point where I do not feel paralyzed about where to start and how to go about filing, deleting, marking as spam, unsubscribing, etc. I cannot thank Mike and his team enough for making this app. I wish Apple would invest in this app to make it a part of the core OS.❞

atharkhan (from App Store)

❝I am a 62 year old woman business owner in Phoenix, Arizona. I lost my eyesight 5 years ago due to a misdiagnosis. Where it seems like it was the end of the world, life running my business with my husband has been simplified so much with the help of the Speaking Email App. It has also given me comfort and independence. Mike is fabulous to work with and is constatly upgrading the App with more features. I would definitely recommend the the Speaking Email App to anyone who may be visually challenged.❞

Laurie A. Dancer - CTB/CEO, BarterWorks

Phoenix, Arizona, USA

❝I work with an individual who is blind and suffering from carpel tunnel type issues as a result of excessive keyboarding and swiping – reading with your hands takes its toll – and the hands-free features are a great boon to someone with this dual challenge who really needs the opportunity to allow their hands/wrists to rest yet still be able to maintain a high level of productivity (and have some juice left to play the piano when work is done), so thank you.❞

Pamela Brett Woods

❝For Adults with ADHD! ADHD can be a superpower in many ways, but in my experience, email and ADHD (I have inattentive type) are not a match. It can be so overwhelming that I just shut down instead of making any progress. This app has changed everything! ... NO unread EMAILS looming over my head on a daily basis ... It's fair to say that getting this app has been a lifesaver for me! And I've never written a review for anything before, so that's how much I love it!❞

Toastie76 (from App Store)

School Principal, USA

❝Your app has the feel of a really refined and mature program, and, most notably, works exactly the way I would have designed it myself for my own usage. It is so intuitive, seamless, and smooth that a lot of care and attention to detail has undoubtably been expended to make this happen❞

Larry H. from Amherst, New York USA

❝I absolutely love the app and being a sales rep in the car 4 to 6 hours a day find it incredibly helpful. It is literally freeing up and hour or two of time for me every day I am on the road by having a lot less time at the desk doing email. THANKS!!!❞

Scott Middleton

VP at Access Partners
