Enabling Speaking Email to access your Yahoo Mail

Q: How do I sign in with Yahoo Mail?

A: You can now use your regular Yahoo password with Speaking Email. We have been approved by Yahoo to provide direct Yahoo Sign In. This means we don't see your password, but only an encrypted token given by Yahoo servers, which makes this connection very secure.

This also works for mail providers that use Yahoo, such as Verizon, AT&T, and Xtra. 

You no longer need to set up the "app password" on the Yahoo website, which was the previous method of connecting (which Yahoo has discontinued).

Speaking Email uses IMAP to connect to Yahoo, which is the industry standard. IMAP has a secure mode, which Speaking Email uses, meaning all data including your security token is encrypted over the network. 

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.
