Email to Speech - Predefined sending tutorial

The Email to Speech predefined mode allows you to setup email addresses which you can give to your customers and other contacts, making it simple for you to stay in touch with them. Emails sent to this address will be relayed to a predefined mobile or landline numbers as synthesised speech messages.


  1. Login to your aql account. 
  2. Choose "Email to Speech", then "Predefined mode" from the SMS menu. 
  3. Setup a predefined email address by using an alias on the domain (subject to availability): for example the alias 'fred' would give you the email address ''.
  4. Alongside this alias, assign the mobile or landline phone number you would like the message to be sent to.

Multiple addresses

You can set up multiple aliases at the domain. For example you would be able to setup an address and mobile number for each member of staff in your company making it simple to contact them while out of the office.

Sending rates and destinations

When an email is sent to this address, the first 300 characters of the message will be relayed as a synthesized voice message. Your account will be charged 1 SMS credit per voice message.


Not all destinations can be reached and delays may occur with certain email content due to synthesisation delay. Please test this solution to make sure it's fit for your purpose.
