I saw the other thread on reading aloud the SMS when connected to your vehicles Bluetooth and though I'd share mine for those who want to be able to respond by voice commands. I'm not trying to upstage that author, but giving other options.

Steps:
1. Wait 2.5 seconds to allow your text message tone to complete
2. Read sender and message body
3. Wait 1 second
4. Ask if you would like to reply
5. If "yes", it will ask you what you want to reply
6. Send message recorded by voice


I've uploaded the profile which includes the Task required for this to function.

You will need to edit the Profile "State" section to select the Bluetooth name in your vehicle. To do this, tap on the Profile and select the "State" that says "Connected to _____". Once in here, delete the one I've got selected and select the Bluetooth you want to activate this part of the Profile.


Hopefully this is useful to someone. Let me know if you have questions.

Long press the "Profiles" tab. The option will appear when you let go.

You'll want t export the .zip file to /sdcard/tasker/profiles

Then you can launcher tasker and tap the "Profiles" tab. You should see this menu show up.

Is this the place where I change the Bluetooth?

Never mind, I figured it out. Does anyone have problems with voice recognition over the car's Bluetooth?

I'm having that problem too. I just tested it out in my car and I love this task but when it ask me do you want to reply I say yes but I'm looking at my phone and it says could not recognize. Is there anyway to fix this?

Also I had my music playing from my phone when I was testing the text. Does the text when read come from the phone speakers or the car speakers because it sounds really soft. Is there a way to make the voice text louder?

How can I modify this to speak other notifications, like from Google Voice or Hangouts messages? And not through BT, just when the phone is used normally.
