Voice Dream Mail
By Voice Dream LLC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Voice Dream Mail works by speech and touch, so you can efficiently go through your email inbox without having to use your eyes.
How It Works
The app reads your email out loud using text-to-speech. You control it using the entire screen of your iPhone or iPad as a touchpad. For example, swipe right anywhere to advance to the next email, and swipe down to trash. In fact, here is no option to see the email message body.
Why It's Efficient
Once you learn the handful of gestures, you will be able to triage your inbox very quickly. You know what to do with most emails after hearing the sender and subject. Because all commands can interrupt reading, it only takes a few seconds to handle each email. Plus, you can gradually increase speech rate: most people can listen at a higher speed than they can read visually.
Is It Safe to Use While Driving?
No. Although you don't have to look at your phone when using this app, using it while driving could be dangerous to others and to yourself, and may cause accidents. Also, it may be illegal.
We support Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, iCloud, AOL, Outlook.com, and any IMAP-based email service. You can perform the following actions eyes-free: Previous, Next, Latest, Flag, Trash, Reply, Reply All, Unread, Rewind, and Download.
This app is for quickly triaging your inbox. It supplements your current email tool and does not replace it. Composing new email and forwarding are not supported right now.

I absolutely love this app. This app really needs to have notification so I know when I'm getting an email. This app needs push notifications like yesterday. Please make this happen as soon as possible
Restful email checking
First, this app rocks.
About me: I have amblyopia in right eye and a scar across the left eye which causes severe irregular astigmatism, double vision and discomfort. Glasses help, but I still often need short breaks from reading, with my eyes completely closed
How I use The app: Lets me lay the phone across my chest and sort through mail with ease, so the eyes closed time is no longer simply passive and it saves me from further eye strain later. I like to use the Rosie voice (in app purchase)
Good price @$1.99
Thank you for reading the reviews for this and your other apps!
$1.99 is an excellent price for this app and it definitely deserves 5 stars now!
If you own this app review it!
If you don't own it yet I think it is a steal at under $2
Getting rid of the subscription for This was a great idea!
Thank you Voice Dream
