Default [Q] Enable driving mode manually?

Does anyone know if its possible to manually enable driving mode? The reason I ask is because the other day I was painting and it would have been nice for the phone to read the text messages to me like it does when I'm driving.

I've been wondering this too! I think it's useful at other times than just driving.

I asked Motorola via the play store email. I asked for a broadcast receiver for intents support so I can activate it with Tasker.
If we all send emails they might implement it.

Not that I know of. I was hoping with the new Touchless Control update it would accomplish this. But once you say "what's up", it just reads your text, but doesn't give you the option to reply like you can with driving mode. When I submitted the request for the feature via the play store, they replied and said "Stay tuned", so maybe something is in the works.
