Q: Can I use Speaking Email with Android Auto?

A: We had been working on a version for Android Auto but unfortunately due to Google restrictions, this is not going to be possible. This means Speaking Email will not show up as an app on the Android Auto screen. 

However, you may still be able to use Speaking Email with your car speakers and microphone, by using either Bluetooth or a cable. We have found this is inconsistent among devices so we suggest you try it out on your setup. You can use the free version to test it out - there is no need to purchase as there is no difference in connectivity between the free and paid versions.

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.
