Mobile Application Available that Reduces the Dangers of “Texting While Driving”

Thu, 09/24/2009 - 5:26am
NEWARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DriveSafe.ly, a free mobile application that reads text messages (SMS) and emails aloud and automatically responds, was officially launched on September 23, 2009. After several months of beta testing, DriveSafe.ly is ready to launch a full version of its application, which will be universally available as a free download for consumers.

This free, easy-to-use application was designed specifically to help combat the dangerous, often deadly trend of “texting while driving.” The full version will offer more robust features and functionality than the beta version such as a more diverse word bank, a variety of additional options and a whole new look.

Developed by iSpeech.org founder Heath Ahrens, DriveSafe.ly utilizes iSpeech.org software as a service (SaaS) to convert text into the highest quality speech available and automatically reads incoming text and email messages aloud through a mobile phone’s speaker or Bluetooth.

In addition, DriveSafe.ly can automatically send a response to every incoming email and text message, letting senders know that the recipient is driving and will respond upon arrival at his or her destination. Users can customize or disable their auto-response message and change it as often as desired.

DriveSafe.ly features one-touch activation, making it truly hands free and easy for drivers to turn on before driving. The free application reads up to 25-words per message, reads text message and email shorthand and features a text auto-responder. A premium version is also available for a one-time $13.95 charge for the life of your phone, or by subscription at $3.95 per month.
