Speaking Email FAQ

Q: How do you delete old mail?
There are a couple of options depending what you want to do. Generally Speaking Email is designed to work seamlessly with your mail server account. Therefore if you delete emails in your regular mail client, or in Speaking Email, they will delete in both places.
To delete old mail from Speaking Email and your mailbox on your mail server account, tap Trash. You can say “trash” or “delete“ when Speaking Email is listening for voice commands (the buttons are on screen and the voice command button is green).
Or you can tap Archive (moves into a folder "archive" on your mail server).
To delete it from Speaking Email only, and not your mail server, go into Account Settings, and change the "Archive" command to not do anything (set the switches to off). Then use "Archive" command to remove them in speaking email without affecting your mail server. There is a shortcut double-tap to archive.
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.
Do you have Apple CarPlay?
