Late at night when you are comfortably laid back in your couch or bed and enjoying the latest addition to your favorite writer’s novel series, you do not really want to get up and look on your phone’s screen to find out who is calling you at such a late an hour. If you have a life partner, then you can make him/her do the checking up for you. But some of us are single and do not really enjoy these tidbits of comfort of the married life. What you can do is install the free app called Caller Name Speaker in your Android phone and listen to the name of the person who is calling you or if the caller’s phone number if it is not in your contacts list.
The Caller Name Speaker app makes it very easy too. All you have to do is just install the app and that’s it. You do not really have to make changes to any settings and such. The app’s default settings work very well for most of us. The only setting that you want to toggle on is Speak during silent mode which basically overrides the silent mode if set by you in your phone and manages to announce the name or the phone number of the caller even in the silent mode.
When you receive a call, it announces the name of the caller along with the ringtone. If your phone’s ringtone is very loud, then you may not hear the announcement, therefore it is a good idea to keep the ringtone volume to a lower setting.
The the voice of announcement is crystal clear and you can understand all the words being spoken. Here is the audio recording of what it said when my friend Rachel Carter called me :
Conclusion: Caller Name Speaker is a productive and interesting app for Android phones. It announces the name or phone number of the caller in clear voice so that you do not have to pick up the phone to check who is calling you.
