Talkler app vs Speaking Email for reading out email on iPhone

  • Talker was the only other talking mail app in the App Store that when we launched Speaking Email. In fact the limitations of Talkler were what inspired us to create a better app in this same category. We think Speaking Email is the best email app that reads your mail to you because:

    • Speaking Email reads HTML email whereas Talker reads plain text versions only (and some emails have no plain version)

    • Talker relies on voice recognition and it often hears itself or interprets noises like moving the phone as commands

    • Speaking Email has fewer commands so is easier to use without looking

    • Speaking Email's gesture recognition is more reliable (eg swipe to next works better)

    • Talkler does not skip email signatures and disclaimers, making email speech very verbose

    • Speaking Email has "ignored senders" allowing you to curate a list of who you want to hear from


    Talkler and Speaking Email are priced about the same, and they both have free versions so you can try them both and see which you think is the best email app for listening to mail. They are both good apps but we (of course!) think Speaking Email is the best app in this category.
