Q: Can I use a non Gmail account?

A: Yes! Speaking Email is now available for any of these services:

  • Gmail
  • Microsoft Exchange

    • Hotmail/Outlook.com
    • Yahoo! Mail
    • iCloud
    • AOL
    • Any mail server that supports IMAP or POP (which is pretty much all mail servers)


    This means we support 99% of the email user base. If you have Lotus Notes, we don't support this natively, but you can use your email via IMAP if your IT team has switched on the IMAP protocol.


    Email us: feedback@speaking.email if you have any issues connecting to your mail server.


    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.
