[APP][2.2+] Speak Text - Hands Free
is a unique app because unlike all of the other sms text speakers this app will only read the message aloud when given a voice command (ex. "Read Message"). If no voice command is given then the text will not be read. The voice command is customizable to be whatever you want as well as toggling the service on/off.
Update: Speak Text now has a setting to always read the sms texts aloud without a command.
I wrote this app because my 8 month pregnant wife kept texting me while I was napping in the pool. Normally the texts would be ignored but being pregnant and all you just never know. So now when I get a text and I'm in the pool I just say "Read Message" and the text is read. I wanted a command to be given (hands free) so that my personal texts aren't read aloud. As far as I know this concept has not been done.
Let me know how your experience is.
