Calendar Notifications

Customize the behavior for your Google calendar event reminder notifications. 

Calendar Notifications

Enable to have your Google calendar event reminder notifications read to you. 

Read Location

Enable to have the event's location read, if it exists.

Notification Delay

Specify how long the app should wait before reading out a calendar event after an event has been triggered.

Headset only

Have notifications read out only when a headset is connected to your device.

Customize Text

What to say?

Here you can change the text that is read out when Google calendar event reminders are triggered.

Enable Shorthand

With this option, you can map abbreviated or mispronounced words to their unabbreviated forms. 

For instance, you can map LOL to "Ha ha ha" or "laughing out loud".

Edit Dictionary

This is the place where you can add, remove and edit your mapped words.

Remove characters

With this option, you can have certain characters removed from the messages. This is useful when the TTS voice engine pronounces things like "forward slash", etc.

Remove URLs from text

Enable this option to have URLs, e.g., detected and removed from messages.

Calendar Blacklist

Enable Blacklist

When this option is enabled, the application will ensure that events are announced only when they belong to calendars that are not blacklisted.

Edit Blacklist

Here you can select the specific calendars you wish to blacklist or even blacklist events based on specific words in the event.

Mute Preferences

Shake to Silence Voice

Enable this option to turn on the shake to mute functionality for calendar notifications.

Shake Sensitivity

Adjust the sensitivity of the shake to stop reading calendar event reminder notifications. Lower numbers are more sensitive than higher ones.

Turn screen on?

Enable this option to have the screen turned on while announcing messages. 

On some devices, like the Samsung Galaxy Note, if the screen is not on, the motion sensor will not activate. 

Wave to mute

Select whether or not you want to wave, twice, to your device while it is announcing messages when the device is docked or charging. This is useful in those situations where grabbing the device is not possible (e.g. when you are driving!).

Facedown Mute

Select this option to disable voice notification by placing your phone in the facedown (screen down) position.
