Priority emails that Gmail thinks are important
Speaking Email FAQ
| All FAQs
Q: I have hundreds of emails in my inbox. Can I just get Gmail important priority emails?
A: Sure, we can set that up in Speaking Email.
We have an advanced Gmail filtering settings. This is under Preferences > account specific settings - your gmail account > Folders to read out.
Here you can exclude all the inbox "tabs" that Gmail shows other than the primary inbox tab. This might be what you want to do.
We have a "custom gmail search query" which allows you to put any gmail search filter in as your filter.
Are you are wanting to see only emails that Gmail labels "important"? To do this enter the following as your advanced search query:
in:inbox AND is:important

You can test your search query by searching it up in gmail for example:
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.
Do you have Apple CarPlay?

❝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.❞
