How To: Do You Want Your Android Phone To Talk To You?

Actually an Android smart phone doesn’t speak by default.

But there is an app that will read and speak what’s inside your phone,
if you select it to do so. And it is, Shouter.
Shouter is amazing. Shouter Pro has so much to offer in an Android app.

I especially enjoy the part where you can have a Shouter Widget on your screen.
The widget sits right there on your screen for easy disabling and enabling.
In other words, turn shouter on or off.

I put together some screenshots from my phone to help serve as a guide in case you would like to use them a reverence resource. (Check them out below)

It’s totally possible to take 30 minute’s out of the evening and tinker around with Shouter.
Have shouter tell you the time.
Shouter can set/read any reminders you have.
It can tell you if the battery is low.
And perhaps the best section, shouter can read the notifications from apps.
Like Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, and many more .

With shouter you can set your own text for reading SMS message’s.
Shouter will read custom text from incoming calls.

And in certain notification sounds set by the phone shouter works well right along side.

Shouter is safe from any un-wanted content (malware, spying, etc.) -but- if you would want to consider if shouter has a bit of a privacy issue, one could say shouter log’s all the incoming notifications. However, you can remove the logs and disable logging. Please keep in my logging is on by default, (default – set to on automatically).

By using the link to Shouter over at Google Play (here) you can learn more about the app,
and or install shouter. Provided your phone is connected to a computer.
You can also just install Shouter from Google Play Store that’s on the phone.
Installing it from there is the best way.

I believe its possible one could get annoyed with shouter after a long day.

One thing for sure, shouter is very useful when you’re driving home from work and the peeps are trying to reach you even though you just happen to be the safest driver on the road and don’t use the smart phone while driving. Hearing the content of the notification without thinking about picking up the phone you can relax and take the time to prepare one’s thought’s before engaging into a follow-up.

I’ve been using Shouter for almost two years now, and have never had any extreme issue’s with the app crashing. Once there was a bug. After an update shouter didn’t reconnect to the selected apps I had set. So I had to uncheck them all and redo. Then shouter updated from the Google Play Store to fix the bug. The current version in release is very stable and I suggest using the software. If you’re a work horse then shouter just might be the smart phone app you need for better office productivity.

There’s only one way to find out if shouter is for you.
Give it a try, if you don’t like having the phone talk to you, then just un-install it.

I rate Shouter with 5 Stars – Think Twitter and POTUS – Shouter is good for Working in the field, while in the Office, sitting at home, in the gym , and if you’re away just soaking up the ray’s. You might want to turn shouter off if you’re on the beach.

By taping on each section is where you can set the many options shouter gives you. At the silent hours option you can choose the hours you want shouter to be silent. The notification section allows you to pick which apps you want shouter to read. Call, Message, and Time allows you to create a custom text, thus reading the custom text setting notifications.

Here’s where you select the apps you want shouter to read and shout, so your phone talks to you. Being able to hear my phone tell me what’s happening in real time is like a normal commodity now. If it suddenly disappeared I would be left wondering what happened.

Shouter Logging

Here we can find the logging shouter can do and does by default. So if you don’t want shouter to log your apps notifications you’re gonna want to go to that section and disable logging. I have shouter saying, “please acknowledge. incoming data. displaying. The rest shouter handles.


If you have any questions I would be glad to answer them, provided I’m able to do so.
Please allow for a timely response.

Now We Can Have A More Private DNS – Cloudflare has launched the internet’s fastest, privacy-first DNS service, 1.1.1.1

With a cell phone hotspot to computer desktop I already connected and dis-connected from this new DNS service, everything worked as it should have, except rainmeter weather. The web parser.dll was confused. I know this a vague description. I haven’t compiled all my data yet. I just wanted to get this out to you if you happen to follow Cloudflare’s directions on their website. That information can be found by scrolling down the web page. Use the link below to head on over there.

Just released today (04.02.18) we now have a new/old perspective about
cloudflare’s new DNS service.

I noticed a welcomed increase when running Google Chrome on a Windows 10 desktop,
the speed increased by 1-2 seconds.

What Is A Smart Contact Lens


Novartis and Google are joining together to work on a smart contact lens that monitors blood sugar levels and corrects vision, the latest in a series of technology products designed to monitor body functions.

BN-DR740_1novar

As part of the agreement, Google and Novartis’ eye care division Alcon will create smart lenses that feature “non-invasive sensors, microchips and other miniaturized electronics” and focus on two main areas. The first will provide a way for diabetic patients to keep on top of their glucose levels by measuring the sugar levels in their tear fluid, feeding the data back to a smartphone or tablet. The second solution aims to help restore the eye’s natural focus on near objects, restoring clear vision to those who are only farsighted (presbyopia).

People with presbyopia, who can no longer read without glasses, Novartis is considering the possibility of implanting the lens directly into the eye. Which, is great but… ouch?

The technology is still very much in its infancy—

Novartis hopes to have a prototype available for research-and-development reviews by early 2015.
