'MediaSpeak7' Announces the Song Info of the Currently Playing Song When it Starts
To add a nice touch to your music listening experience in iOS 7, check out a new free jailbreak tweak called MediaSpeak7 by iOS developer Majd Alfhaily.
With MediaSpeak7, whenever new media starts playing on your iOS 7 device, the device will use Siri's voice to announce information about the media that is beginning to play. You can configure from the tweak's preferences pane, which is added to the Settings application, what the tweak will announce:
From here, you can enable or disable the tweak on demand, configure a custom speaking rate for the announcement, as well as configure whether you want the tweak to announce the artist's name and/or the album name of the media that started playing.
The way the tweak works is simple. If we tap on a new song in one of our music applications, such as Spotify, like Pompeii by Bastille, the device will announce, "Now playing, Pompeii – Bad Blood, by Bastille." It's that simple, and the tweak works with all kinds of music applications, including third-party ones from the App Store.
If you would like to give MediaSpeak7 a try, it's available for free in Cydia's BigBoss repository. The tweak is open source, which means that the source code can be viewed by the public on GitHub at this link. To use MediaSpeak7, you must be running iOS 7.
Requirements: iOS 7.0-7.1.2
Tested on: iPhone 5 running iOS 7.1.2

This is pretty cool but it would drive me crazy! LOL I'm sure some will find it very useful though.
