Listen and Talk to Your Emails
A new, free app fixes that.
Specifically, Talkler allows me to read all of my emails out loud while I’m driving, to delete emails I don’t want, and even to reply with verbal recordings to the email senders.
Here’s a screenshot showing what the basic Talkler interface looks like when you’re reading an email:
As one example, if you’re phone is on the seat next to you while you’re driving, you can tap anywhere on the screen once to pause an email, and tap again to start playing again. Or you can scroll to the left to play the previous email, or to the right to play the next email. In other words, you can control a lot of basic functions manually without looking at your phone.
Talker understands a variety of verbal commands:
Power users can fiddle with the settings:
The one problem with Talkler is that it does not yet support outlook. The developers say they’re hard at work making it Outlook-compatible.
Try Talkler … We think you’ll like it.
Postscript: There are other apps which read emails out loud … but they are buggy, and don’t work as well as advertised.
We’re not receiving any money or other perks from Talker. We just think this is a killer app …
