How to listen to your SMS while driving

How to listen to your SMS while driving

In our age of continuous communication and "everything right now", it has become entirely normal to read one's messages a few seconds after receiving them. In addition to this sad fact, we must remember the dangers that this may have in certain situations, especially when driving. Fortunately, there is a solution to access your SMS without even watching your smartphone: audio playback.

In France, most packages allow sending and receiving SMS in an unlimited way. If your hands are busy doing something more important (eg driving!), It is better to leave the SMS on the side and wait for a moment. Unfortunately, today no one wants to postpone communication later. Applications can read your SMS loudly at the reception, and obviously, you do not need your fingers to hear the message.

SMS reader: the application adapts to French speakers

We are now interested in the application of Vincent Debosse's SMS reader. At the first launch, the application explains what permissions it needs to work. I appreciate this clarity from the developer. The use is extremely simple, just switch on the button next to "SMS reader" to activate the function.

readerdesms "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc ((2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" playerdesms-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />
You activate the application easily by checking "SMS reader" at the top. AndroidPIT
<p style=You will find several interesting settings in the options menu. To name just two, be aware that you will be able to decide if you want to start the application from the start, or if it needs to read the name of the sender.

In this application, you access the list of all your SMS, by clicking on one of them you will start sound reading. This feature may be useful in some cases, but it is even more interesting to read the new messages directly than to listen to the ones you have probably read.

The application is successful and, cherry on the cake, entirely in French. The only minor fix is ​​the presentation of the number if it is not already registered: the numbers are read as if it were a number, ie in billions / millions / thousands / hundreds / tens .

SMS reader: can do better but several languages ​​are supported

The SMS reader application is not nearly as good as the first application of this list. We feel an application that has potential but must still be worked. His great strength is to manage several languages, including French. Of course, if you only receive messages from French speaking contacts, it is better to turn to SMS reader.

His great strength is to manage several languages

Once the application installs, you just have to go in the options to change the language in French. All in all, the app does what it is asked for but there is still work to get something really reliable. For example, when a new message arrives, you hear "from" instead of saying the word in French. Rest assured, the rest of the sentence is read in good French. Not too bad, but there is better.
