Looking for an IPhone 4 app that will verbally speak my incoming emails & texts to me through my Bluetooth headset or IPhone speakerphone

Looking for an IPhone 4 app that will verbally speak my incoming emails & texts to me through my Bluetooth headset or IPhone speakerphone.

I receive a lot of emails and texts while I am driving that I am otherwise unable to read right away.

I need an IPhone 4 app that will verbally speak my incoming emails & texts to me through my Bluetooth headset or IPhone speakerphone.

What sort of apps are available that can do this?

Please provide the URL hyperlinks that describe these IPhone 4 apps to me that will speak my incoming emails & texts to me through my Bluetooth headset or IPhone speakerphone.

Don't waste your time, there's no such thing.  The only apps that will go text-to-speech require you to copy and paste the text from the email into the app.  You'll crash into a tree while you do that, it's exactly what you're trying to avoid.

If these sorts of apps aren't available for the IPhone 4, will they be available for the IPhone 5?

Until tomorrow morning, anyone who claims to know much of ANYTHING about the iPhone 5 is full of it.

maximus5328, I haven't gotten my IPhone yet.

Is this something that the iPhone's built-in VoiceOver would be able to do?

VoiceOver reads the text back to you, but I don't know how well it works.
And the new Siri assistant available on the new iPhone 4S is supposed to be even better.
