Q: Does it read emails automatically out as they arrive?
A: Yes but only while Speaking Email is in the foreground playing emails. In other words, while you are listening to your inbox, any new emails are inserted in the next available slot, so when you move to the next email it will be one that has just come in.
You can also configure it to only read new incoming email.
Note that while the app is in the background it will not start speaking. Why not? See more about how to configure new email only and why background mode is not supported.
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.
