Q: How can I listen to Gmail emails?
A: Speaking Email is drop dead simple to hook up to your Gmail account. Just download the app and click on "Sign in with Gmail". You can then hear your Gmail read out loud to you.
You can manage your mail by voice command, including reply, forward and composing new emails. Emails are sent using Gmail servers so it comes from you. There is no email server configuration needed, and no chance of emails being classified as spam due to being sent via non-Gmail servers.
Speaking Email is designed to be safe to use while driving and fully operable by voice for blind, low vision and disabled users. Other solutions such as Gmail read out loud plugins for desktop Gmail (eg Speechify) don't have the full functionality or the portability and ease of use offered by a native mobile app.
