App Store unavailable

Q: Why am I seeing an error accessing the store?

A: Speaking Email in-app payments are via your Apple account using the App Store. If Speaking Email cannot connect to the App Store, you will see an error message, similar to the following:

App Store purchases are unavailable. Either you are offline, your credit card has expired, you may have disabled in-app purchases in your settings, or something else about your setup is preventing access to in-app purchases.

Your phone needs to be online for App Store connectivity to work. Your Apple account needs to be set up correctly with a valid credit card.

You can disable purchases in your account settings, which will also result in this same error message. For example parental settings can prevent purchasing. 

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.
