    I have a Tasker profile which reads SMS aloud. How do I prevent this when I'm a call?
    Can I have Tasker wait until the call had ended, then read the SMS?

    I have a profile set to read SMS when I'm in the car but it does this even if I'm on the phone.
    Can I make it so Tasker waits until my call is done before reading the SMS that was received?

    Welcome to Android Forums.

    In the profile display Long press on the trigger condition
    When menu appears select Add
    When menu appears select State
    When menu appears select Phone
    When menu appears select Call
    Select Any
    Select Invert

    Therefore do A if no making or receiving a call.

    The reading after the call would have to be manually requested.

    (I use this to enable blanking screen with proximity sensor unless I am on a call.)

    Your two threads were merged together here in the Tasker sub-forum.
