*** This is an ad sponsored version for general testing in hopes that you will want to buy the app! ***
If you had v1.x and upgraded to 2.x and are having problems, try uninstalling and reinstalling the app.
Google Now conflicts with speech recognition apps. It is necessary to disable Google Now always listening (OK Google).
"Speak" - First command to read text.
"Cancel" - End processing text.
"Repeat" - Repeat what was spoken by the app last.
"Send" - Send what was spoken by user last.
Everything else understood is interpreted as a new text message.
If the app didn't understand what was spoken, it will repeat the last thing spoken by the app.
SMS TEXT OPTIONS:
- Speaks texts as they are received.
- Reply to text by naturally speaking your message.
- Voice commands to listen to message, send, cancel and repeat.
- Repeats voice prompts on unknown reply.
OPTIONS WHEN CONNECTING TO BLUETOOTH:
- Auto start built in URL player or 3rd party music player.
- Ignore phone silent setting for speaking texts with Bluetooth.
- Autostart on phone reboot.

- Requires internet connection for Text speech functions.
- Requires TTS and STT engines which are both free downloads on Google Play.
- May require phone reboot in order to use voice commands (see FAQ's).
- If you are not hearing the prompt for speaking commands (short beep) try rebooting. Also, try "enable on boot" and rebooting as well. Some Samsung phones require this.
