    Voice Notify announces status bar notification messages using Text-To-Speech (TTS) so you don't need to look at the screen to know what a notification says.

    UPDATE NOTICE: Google made a change to policy requiring VN to stop using the Accessibility service. It was replaced with the Notification Listener service in v1.1.0. This resulted in some changes that may not be desired, such as the removal of the toast option or speaking every notification update instead of only new notifications. I cannot guarantee that everything will be restored in the future, but I will try. In the meantime, if you don't like v1.1.0, I would suggest leaving detailed feedback and sideloading v1.0.12 from GitHub to restore the old functionality and behavior.

    *Widget to suspend VN
    *Customizable TTS message
    *Limit length of spoken message
    *Replace text to be spoken
    *Ignore specific apps or notifications containing defined text
    *Choice of TTS audio stream
    *Choice of speaking when screen or headset is on or off, or while in silent/vibrate mode
    (Note: Due to API limitations, a headset that is connected when the VN service starts will need to be reconnected for VN to see the current state; also all Bluetooth devices are detected the same, headset or not)
    *Quiet Time
    *Custom delay of TTS after notification
    *Repeat notifications at custom interval while screen off
    *Notification log
    *Post a test notification

    VN operates through Android's Notification Listener service and must be enabled in the Notification Access settings.
    Shortcuts are provided in the configuration screen to open the Notification Access and TTS settings.

    Bluetooth - Required to detect whether Bluetooth headset is connected.
    Vibrate - Required for Test feature while phone is in vibrate mode.
    Modify Audio Settings - Required for improved wired headset detection.
    Read Phone State - Required to interrupt TTS if a phone call becomes active.

    Behavior of audio streams may vary by device or Android version, so I advise doing your own testing to determine which stream is right for you. The Media stream (default) should be good for most people.

    Voice Notify developers are not responsible for the notifications that are announced. It is up to you to configure VN or your device, or not use VN, to prevent unwanted announcing of notifications.

    If necessary, you can sideload any version from the releases section on GitHub:

    You took a brilliantly easy to use application and turned it into a pile of complicated junk. I can't get it to do what the old app did effortlessly. Way too complicated now. I want the old version back!!

    "Quiet time" is all but impossible to set. Ridiculously complex interface. No indication if its set or not.
