Speaking Email enables managing email via voice commandsSpeaking Email FAQ | Home | All FAQs
Q: Do you have voice recognition?
A: Yes, Speaking Email can be operated using voice commands.
Providing safety while driving and accessibility for blind and dyslexic users means we have to enable a variety of input methods and not rely on sight or touch.
We've made Speaking Email support voice commands for daily usage, such as checking emails, replying and managing mail. You don't need to touch the screen at all, apart from setting up preferences.
Speaking Email can wait for your command at the start and end of emails, and you can interrupt it any time if you touch the screen anywhere.
You can say any of the labels on the buttons: "archive", "trash", "ignore", "flag", "repeat", "reply", "forward", "play". This makes it very easy to remember what you can say and when.
You can dictate replies and even edit them (say "dictation help" when dictating to find out how).
Anywhere you can say a command you can say "help" to find out what you can say, or "stop" to stop listening.
“I am a totally blind man I am so thankful for speaking email. It is help me in a way that's hard for me to describe. I thank you for creating it and I hope others will enjoy it as much as I do.”
What is Speaking Email?
An app for iPhone and Android that reads your email out loud to you. It intelligently extracts content from emails (minus the signatures, disclaimers and threads). And it lets you action your email - archive, mark-as-read, trash, flag, reply, or forward. It can be completely by voice command, or use the large on-screen buttons or full screen touch gestures.
Who is it for?
People with blindness or visual impairment. People who are busy and run out of time to get through their inbox. People who want to make productive use of time when driving between appointments.
