Q: Does it work with Amazon Alexa (Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Show)?

A: Not at present - only Android Phones, Tablets, and Apple iPhones and iPad. We have a version for Amazon Alexa, but there are some limitations with Alexa, and the way it interacts, and remembers where it is up to, with interactions with Humans. We decided to pause work on this feature, as it was not working well enough for us to release. Please contact us about this on feedback@speaking.email if this is important to you.


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.
