How to listen to a selected email in your inbox

Q: How can I get to a specific message?

A: Q: There are times when I want to have speaking email read a message that might be at the very end of the inbox, but I have to read ahead to the end of the inbox for example, but to get to that message, I have to read all the preceding emails, which on a given day, can be more than 50, creating a tedious task. Is there a way I can "cherry pick" a known message by providing a speaking email with relevant information?

A: Yes you can say "important" to have emails from the particular sender read out first.

Another thing you can do is say "inbox" to go to the list of emails in your inbox, then say a number such as "fifty" and that will jump to email number 50 in your inbox. 

A third approach is to use the "search" command if you know the subject or sender. 

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.
