Q: How can I add voices on my iPhone?
A: Speaking Email uses the Apple voices installed on your iPhone. You can easily download more enhanced quality voices.
In iPhone Settings, select General > Accessibility > Speech > Voices
There you can download voices for any language. You need to be on wifi to download voices since they are quite big files.
Back in Speaking Email you can now select those voices you've just downloaded.
When you upgrade to Premium, you can choose any voice to be your email reader, and a second voice to be your "announcer".
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 - using voice commands or on-screen buttons. It works with Microsoft 365 (aka Office, Outlook) and Gmail email accounts, as well as most other providers including any standard IMAP server.
Who is it for?
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 to work. People with blindness, vision problems, or other disabilities who cannot see or type and want to be able to hear, reply to, and compose emails by voice.
Does it work on Apple CarPlay?
