Archiving on server

Speaking Email FAQ | Home | All FAQs

Q: If I archive an email in Speaking Email, will this archive it in my other mail client (eg Outlook, Gmail, Inbox for Gmail, Thunderbird, Mac Mail app, Windows Mail)

A: Yes, of course! You can also customise this so it puts all mail archived by Speaking Email into a folder of your choice. By default it will create a new folder called “Speaking Email Archived” but you can change this to any folder you like or turn this feature off.


You can change the options so that the "archive" command (or double-tap) doesn't move the email but instead just marks as read. This is the way many people manage their email (but we recommend archiving email to make your life less cluttered!).


Note that this does not work on POP servers, so we recommend using IMAP if available.


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.
