Best email app 2020Speaking Email FAQ | Home | All FAQs
Q: Is Speaking Email the best email app of 2020?
A: We hope to be included in the 2020 list of best email apps.
We were notably absent in 2019, but we hope this year will be the one where we get noticed by TechCrunch, The Verge, Lifewire, TechRadar, iMore and the other big tech news sites who put out these reviews.
While it's more a specialised email app, we still would like to be included in some of the magazine and review sites roundups of the best email apps of the year.
2019 saw the launch of Outlook Play My Emails, a new feature for the Outlook iOS app combining Cortana speech tech with Outlook. We hope this puts email voice assistants on the map on the best email apps lists.
2019 also saw several of the best email apps of 2018 now being defunct, including Newton, Google Inbox, and Astro (which also had voice commands like Speaking Email).
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.
