Finally … an iPhone App That Will Read My Emails Out Loud!

Listen and Talk to Your Emails

As an iPhone power user, I’ve been frustrated for years by the inability to have my emails spoken out loud … in the same way that Siri can read text messages out loud.

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:

You’re going to be listening and talking most of the time … not looking at the interface. However, Talkler’s interface is clean and easy-to-use.

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:


And it understands quite a few synonyms and alternative phrases for those 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 …

    I have a confession to make. Actually, I have two confessions to make.

    I run Windows 2000 on my home computer. Yes, I do. It’s remarkably stable. And it saves me a lot of time because, there are a lot of trivial Internet features that do not work on my computer. I never have to go to any of those web pages that load with Flash-Crash.

    And, I don’t own a cell phone. And I never have had one. I don’t want one either, not even if Obama pays for it. The FBI is not tracking me with my cell phone. I don’t have one.

    I do not even like to hear my landline phone ring. When it rings, if my wife is nearby, I refuse to answer it. Exasperated, she screams at me with a towel wrapped around herself, “Why didn’t you get it?”

    I love seeing her with a towel wrapped around herself.

    Anyway, I always respond, -Whoever it was, they’ll call back, if it was important.

      >> Anyway, I always respond, -Whoever it was, they’ll call back, if it was important.

      They can email you, too. If it’s not important enough for them to type out, then it’s not important.

    Please, everyone, be *very* careful with this kind of thing. Many studies have shown that it’s not the act of holding the device that causes car crashes, but the conversation itself. That is, using a hand-free device does not prevent driver distraction, the main cause of crashes. Checking your email, even if it’s being read aloud to you, makes you far more likely to run into me or another innocent driver. Here’s a quick summary of the research: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_phones_and_driving_safety#Handsfree_device . And here’s an entertaining study that really shows what’s going on in our brains: http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/10/22/what-clown-on-a-unicycle-studying-cell-phone-distraction/

    • Honest Harry’s Used Cars

      Yeah. And all those of you who are out on the road driving drunk and stoned, you should have your pants yanked up into a wedgie so tight you cannot reproduce, you blithering morons! Find someplace else for your imbecility other than out on the highway where you’re likely to kill someone of some real worth to society. Get a life losers! Yours is expendable. But if you take the life of someone else in such an accident, expect to rot in prison for a while.

      Agreed, its pretty useful but you should be careful while doing that kinda stuff.
