Email TTS (Text-To-Speech) with Speaking Email app for iPhone and Android

Speaking Email FAQ | Home | All FAQs

Q: What TTS engine do you use for reading email?

A: Speaking Email uses your phone's native TTS (Text-To-Speech) engine to read your emails to you in a clear voice. It uses your phone's regional settings so it speaks your emails aloud in your language and accent.


We first extract the content from each email in your inbox, using our proprietary algorithms to turn emails into spoken language, and use the TTS engine to provide the speech synthesis of this email content.


If you have the premium edition, there's a "multilingual" option too. This option switches voices based on language. It detects the language of the email contents and selects the highest quality voice installed on your phone of that language. You can also select your preferred voice for your local language as well as English. 



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.
