Hi all,

This is my first public app. I first created it for myself because I wanted to hear notifications while I'm biking with headset plugged in and all other available apps doesn't work that well.

Speaki read aloud your notifications by android's Text-to-Speech capabilities.

+ Smart - trying to read only the relevant text from your notification.
+ Selection - select which apps would you like Speaki to read aloud.
+ Speak Output - protect your privacy and control when Speaki should read.
+ Read content - read aloud full notification content (beside title and summary).
+ Caller ID - speak caller ID on incoming call.
+ Stop - stop Speaki from reading by double press the power key or by pressing the stop/play button on your headset.
+ No interruption during phone calls.
+ Quick enable/disable switch and tile.

  • Speaki can read you text only if you have Text-To-Speech which support the text language.
  • You can either use the default Text-To-Speech (TTS) engine, already built-in your mobile phone or any other TTS engine you find and download from the Google play store.
  • The following languages supported by Google Text-to-speech: Bengali (Bangladesh), Cantonese (Hong Kong), Danish, Dutch, English (Australia), English (India), English (United Kingdom), English (United States), Finnish, French, German, Hindi, Hungarian, Italian, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin (China), Mandarin (Taiwan), Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Spanish (Spain), Spanish (United States), Thai and Turkish.

You are more than welcome to request new features or report bugs.

New updates:
Speaki now support emoji alias!

What does it mean?
Speaki now reads the emoji alias instead of replacing it with the constant "emoji" text.
For example, if you get the following notification: "I Love Speaki 😘!" it will be translated to: "I Love Speaki Throwing Kisses".

This feature depend on your Text-to-Speech capabilities, if your Text-to-Speech doesn't support emoji alias try to check the new "Replace Emojis" option and Speaki will do it best to translate the emoji (English Only).

Also on the latest updates:
Fix Speaki sometimes not working due to Android new SDK background service limitations.

Have fun 😉
