I wish there was an easy toggle shortcut that could be placed on the home screens. I like having this on while i'm driving but would be nice to turn on and off quickly as well.

Right now I just leave it on all the time.

audiored I use Tasker's native SMS reading function to do this automatically when I'm in the car, works great - you could also set up a Tasker toggle widget to do it.

Notsure read name and not numbers

with the text to speech.

If your phone reads out a phone number that you have in your phone and not the name.
For example.
0412 123 456 name Bradley it will read the number

+61412123456 name Bradley it will read the name instead.

+61 international for Australia. Replace for your country.
Remove the 0 if first digit of your number.

Will be good if when your phone is put on silent these messages are not read out. But be warning if you are in a play or movies with your phone on silent it will scream notices out full volume.

Making you look like you didn't turn of or silence. Fix it Samsung

Same with camera.


Voice Talk. Will open the control panel for toggling on/off driving mode.

Just for kicks, you might wanna check out Accessibility under Settings to see if you somehow enabled Talkback. I did that a couple weeks ago and it drove me mad til I figured out what I'd done.
