The description of Out Loud

Out Loud reads your notifications to you when you are driving, running, or any other time you want. Notification reading is enabled on a per-app basis. Other features:

- Automatically turn on/off when headphones are plugged/unplugged.
- Enable/disable a persistent notification when Out Loud is on.
- Choose TTS engine, language, speech rate, and speech volume (relative to media volume).
- Optionally show a dialog with the notification that is being read along with the app name and/or app icon.
- On/off widget for your homescreen (1x1 or 2x1).
- Widget for reading current active notifications.
- Optionally disable when the screen is on and unlocked or when the device's ringer is set to silent or vibrate.
- Choose what part of the notification to read: ticker text, content text, big text, or some combination.
- On a per-app basis, select the text to read and the language to use.

Note: only one app may be enabled at a time while you are evaluating Out Loud. Purchase the Out Loud unlocker to enable as many apps as you want.

Other advanced features available after purchase of the unlocker:

- Profiles. Manage groups of enabled apps for different situations. Automatically select a profile when headphones or bluetooth are connected.
- Blacklist. Define a list of words that will prevent a notification from being read.
- Substitutions. Substitute "lol" with "ha ha ha" before a notification is read.
- Scheduled events. Schedule times when Out Loud should turn on or off, or schedule times to switch profiles.
- Backup/restore enabled apps, preferences, and data for profiles, blacklist words, substitutions, and scheduled events.
