Composing emails to people not in address book

Q: Can I write an email to someone not belonging to the contacts?

A: It can’t be done entirely by voice but there is a way. You can create their address in your “favourites”, is under preferences > reply, forward, compose.

To choose from favourites when composing a new email, say “favourites” when it asks “who to?”. And this will give you a pick list to choose from your favourites. Say “list“ to have the pick list spoken, and select by saying the number of the item. 

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.
