    Hi,

    I would like to be able to “say” an email or text message to myself or my wife sometimes. When I hold down the input field I get an input choice menu but the only option there is the Android Keyboard. Am I doing it wrong? What am I missing?

    I would also like to have it read emails to me, and word docs (or just .txt). I have a Kindle but my phone is a little more convenient for something I would rather read in bits and pieces while walking to and fro the car or whatever.

    Handcent offers Speech to Txt, as for reading it back to you, there is an app out there, but I cant recall what it was called, something like SMS Talker maybe? Not 100% sure, but I did have it at one point.

    Handcent SMS will also read your messages back to you. I don't know if there is an app that will do both of these for your e-mail though.

    Is there an app out there that lets you dictate a note to self or something like that? I know there is the ability to put "sticky notes" on your homescreen. Can you create a sticky note using voice command? This would be really handy for if you remember on your way to work that you need to pick up milk on the way home or something so you want to set a reminder but can't type at the time.

    "Note Everything" allows you to create text, voice, and paint notes.

    SMS Popup will read your text messages to you, and translate your voice into text messages. Plus a LOT of other customizations for your text messages.

    Text To Speech is a service used by several programs, such as Google Maps Navigation, and Handcent SMS, among others. It is called by the program, which feeds the text in and the voice outputs according to your settings (rate, volume, American or British English, etc). You would probably not want to get rid of the service, it just doesn't work as a program itself, like you were expecting.
