Q: Can it play my email in French? Spanish? German? Japanese? Chinese?

A: Yes. Email reading works in all languages supported by your phone, so long as you have the relevant voices installed. 


Speaking Email CarPlay will switch voices to a French voice when an email arrives in French and then to Spanish when a Spanish one is detected and back to English when one comes in English. It even switches languages within an email if the thread contains replies in multiple languages. We call this feature "Multilingual" and you can turn it on or off under preferences.


The user interface and voice commands are always in English. 


Our proprietary signature, disclaimer, and thread header detection algorithms support 12 languages including English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Dutch, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Afrikaans, Polish, Portuguese, and partial support for Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Romanian, Russian, Thai, Hindi, Hebrew. This means it will skip over signatures and disclaimers when recognised. 


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.


What if I don't have CarPlay?

See our other product Speaking Email for iPhone and Android for anyone who doesn't have CarPlay.
