Does Speaking Email read out SMS text messages?

Q: Does Speaking Email read out SMS text messages?

A: Sorry, Speaking Email only reads out email. It does not read out SMS text messages.

While this would be technically possible on Android, developers are not given access to intercept SMS messages on the Apple platform. We want to provide parity of features between iOS and Android as much as possible.

We have been asked about supporting other message types, such as iMessage, WhatsApp, Viber and Facebook Messenger. These are proprietary formats and so are not likely to be accessible by third party developers such as ourselves.

In any case, we believe it is sensible to stick to a core proposition, and it our case that is to focus on being the best possible talking email app available on any platform.
