Q: Can I use Speaking Email with the app ‘Mailbox’?

A: Yes. They work great together. Because both apps use your Gmail account directly, you can use them both to help take control of your inbox. 


There are a number of folders you can customise in Speaking Email and you can set these to Mailbox folders if you wish - for example set your ‘star folder’ to be "[Mailbox]/To Read" or "[Mailbox]/Later".


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.
