Garbled very fast speech issue

Q: Speech garbled, seems to be reading insanely fast

A: Hi, yes this fast gibberish being spoken is an issue with ios 16. It will hopefully be fixed with the latest update (not sure if it has been yet). You can fix it by selecting a different voice in speaking email preferences - voices - choose a different 'announcer' and 'english reader' voice. 

Alternatively if re-download the voices in system settings - accessibility - voices, this will also fix the issue. 

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.
