Best voice notifier Continues to be one of my favorite apps. Love the new toggle widget! I have tried SpeakMe, Vlingo, Dragon, and several other apps to read my incoming text messages. Voice Notifier is by far the most reliable and efficient for my needs. And, terrific support from the developer!
Very useful, I use it when I'm in my car to get notifications spoken and it works great for such. However it would be awesome if it could be linked to bluetooth. This is because I'm sloppy, and regularly forget to either switch on or off. The widget is however already a good begin
Fantastic app! I highly recommend it! 'Voice Notify' is an essential app for anyone, but especially useful for someone such as myself who has dexterity difficulties, also has a SCI & is a fulltime wheelchair user. I do not have to look at my phone to know what is happening. VN is very customisable, eg, you can stop some FB group messages by putting the group name or a word in the 'ignored text' option in VN settings. Wish 'Email' said who was sending the emails like 'Gmail' does. Unfortunately on my new Note4, VN keeps being 'disabled'!?! Such a pain for an essential app! 😞
I love you I've been looking forever for an app that would do this. I have a Bluetooth headset and I hate that the notification sound would play through the phone and the headphones. But this is way more useful because I can have my phone on silent and still hear exactly what the notification is.
Excellent and very useful app. Works perfectly. I especially like that you can specify which of your phone's apps VN will speak for. Suggestions/comments: 1) Would be nice if it could also say caller's names. 2) And if the widget changed colour (and shape?) when VN is turned off. ...p.s. Just realised it does seem to change colour but for those of us who are colour-blind, we need a much clearer change please. ...maybe from primary red or yellow when "on" to greyed out when "off". Thanks. 2) YouTube alerts don't seem to be read although YouTube is set to "not ignored". 3) It would be nice to display "Run VN yes/no?" on power-up. It's a bit disconcerting to hear it suddenly start talking when you turn your phone on as you leave the cinema.
Best so far, but badly needs ability to set messages for Emails, SmS/MMS, Calls and so on separately. Currently it's only one for all of them. As well, it needs to have a bit more time between reading of multiple emails and messages. It comes off as one long one if more than one as it is now. Better than SoundAbout, and many others though, integration was quick, and seamless.
