How to send screen shot of error?

Speaking Email FAQ | Home | All FAQs

Q: I had an error, how do I take a screen shot on my phone and send you the error?

We would like to make sure the app works for all users, so if you get an error, we would like you to provide some details about the issues you had, hopefully with error messages or screenshots. 


Screen shots are great for helping us understand the problems you might be having. On an Android phone, such as a Samsung Galaxy, you can take a screen shot by pressing the power key and the volume down key at the same time - for approx 3 seconds. This will put the photo of the screen in your camera gallery, where you could email it to us on

For iPhones, you simply need to press the power button and volume up (or home button for some versions of iPhone) at the same time. Again, this will put the photo of the screen in your camera gallery, where you could email it to us on

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.
