AOL users can now use Speaking Email

Q: Can I connect to AOL?

A: Yes :)

If your account is protected by AOL 2 Step Verification, see the below information to set up an "application-specific password" for Speaking Email. This is the most secure way to connect apps to your AOL account, and it is likely that your account will require this. 

You need to set up the "app password" on the AOL website, which you can either do inside Speaking Email (it launches in a pop up window enabling you to copy and paste) or do it on your computer (a bit easier on a bigger screen) and type in the generated password. 

You can tell whether you have 2 Step Verification by looking on your account screen in AOL's portal:

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.

Do you have Apple CarPlay?
