Thread: Text to speech SMS Reader

    just an idea, I guess would be for 3gs owners since it has the voice control option.

    Say your driving and you get a text and you want to look at it to see if it's important but you don't want to take your eyes off the road, the hack would have the ability to have the text be read out loud for you by the system voice, or be spoken into your earpiece if your wearing one. and maybe even a privacy option to where you can have it only read out loud to you when you have a headset/earpiece on.

    Anyone else think this could help people? I have no knowledge of how to make iPhone apps so I brought it here as an idea.

    If you need someone to actually SAY to you want they want you to know, some cell phone companies are apparently planning to roll out a new feature for phones called "voice chat." You actually get to have a live, real-time voice conversation with someone on the other end! It's REVOLUTIONARY!

    Text to speech..
    then speech to text.
    Wouldn't it just be easier to talk to the person?
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    I was about to post that, but looks like you found it.

    Haha exactly. I just moved to California though and it is illegal to talk/txt and drive. I have been desiring an app like this since.

    I have an app like this on my blackberry curve, one on my iPhone too would be amazing, because like stealth said its illegal to text and drive where I live.
    If I helped then hit the thanks button...
