How to set up Speaking Email

Speaking Email FAQ | Home | All FAQs

Q: Does it use the mail settings in my phone?

A: You need to open Speaking Email and click Account Settings to add your email account. It does not hook into the email app in the phone. (This is because Apple does not allow this)

So therefore you have to look at your email settings, which you can find in your Settings in your phone or on your computer (eg in Outlook). First thing is what kind of email server is it?
There are buttons to add the common types and "Other IMAP/POP" button if you don't know or it isn't listed.
Once that is set up, to listen to your email you then just need to open the app. It will read the first 50 or 250 emails in your inbox, plus any that arrive while you are using the app. So you just open it when you get in the car, or when want it to start reading.


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.
