DriveSafe.ly Reads Your Text Messages Aloud

By Jason Fitzpatrick on February 28th, 2011

DriveSafe.ly, a free application for Android and BlackBerry phones, reads your text messages, emails, and caller ID notifications aloud so you can stay connected while keeping your eyes on the road.

DriveSafe.ly is a feature packed application that reads your text messages, your emails, and the ID from your caller ID aloud. It’s not the only SMS-to-speech application out there but it sports the most featured including rocking a customizable auto-responder (so you can let people know you heard their message and will respond as soon as you’re off the road), the ability to customize the voice and the read-rate, how much information if given (the senders name or just the message or the senders name, subject, and message in the case of emails), and more.

Upgrading to the $13.95 a year premium version allows voice-to-txt translation so you can respond verbally to your text messages and emails. Hit up the link below to read more and grab a copy for your Android or BlackBerry phone.
