Choosing enhanced voices for CarPlay email reading

Speaking Email FAQ | Home | All FAQs

Q: How can I choose the voice?

A: Speaking Email CarPlay sounds best using an 'Enhanced' voice.


You can check and download extra 'Enhanced' voices under System Settings > General > Accessibility > Voices. 


To select a voice to use in Speaking Email CarPlay, go into Preferences > Voices and choose the voice you like for each language. Note there are two 'English' selections - one for the 'announcer' and one for English email reading. 


What is Speaking Email CarPlay?

An app for iPhone and Apple CarPlay 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 the CarPlay interface controls. It works Office 365 and Gmail email accounts.


Who is it for?

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.
