Unified Inbox

Speaking Email FAQ | Home | All FAQs

Q: Is there a unified inbox?

A: If you have multiple accounts, a unified inbox would show all accounts combined into a single view. We don't support this feature, but it is on our development roadmap. Email us if you want this feature.


If you want to play one account (say your work account) and then another (say your personal account), you can do this easily by saying the voice command "account" when you want to switch accounts. You can also add "account" to your onscreen buttons (under Preferences > Buttons).


As a workaround, you could create your own unified inbox by, for example, forwarding your accounts to a new gmail account that you create. You can even use gmail to check other IMAP and POP accounts directly, just look under Gmail Settings > Accounts > Check email from other accounts.  


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.
