METARspk will "speak" the current METAR at any reporting station that has METAR capabilities. A choice of male or female voice can be selected. This allows for "hands-free" checking of the weather at a reporting station. Up to four stations can be "preset".
The METAR is obtained from: http://adds.aviationweather.gov/metars/index.php.
This may not be the current METAR at a reporting station as a more recent observation may sometimes be obtained by telephone.
This version is limited to those stations that report the altimeter setting in inches-of-mercury. Any station reporting the altimeter in pascals will still show the complete METAR at the bottom of the screen, but the voice will be inhibited from speaking.
If the iPhone is in vibrate mode, turning the voice off (on the setup page) will result in better performance.
