    Voice announcement when message arrived

    Have had my SG2 for 2 months and strangely tonight when a text from my son came through there was a voice announcement telling me I had a message from him. I was a bit shocked as not heard this before and am not aware of altering any settings. My husband has since tried texting me and there was no voice announcement whereas when I asked my son to do it again, I did get the voice but he has no idea why it happened either. (We both have a GS2 but he has been texting me regularly and this has never happened until tonight).

    I would love to know what has caused this and obviously then I can choose whether to cancel it.

    Cheers.

    You have turned ur driving mode on... Go to settings, the to voice input and output, then text-to-speach, you will find driving mode has been ticked, take the tick off and the reading of text will stop.

    Perfect, thanks Dave4Bren that's great. I had not turned it on there but I had been in my Voice Talk app having a mooch and must have caught the driving mode bit. It's a learning curve.

    Thank you. I do not have voice input under my settings, but I did have an Icon with a car and a line that was lighted under it, whice meant the same thing. My driving mode was on. Thank you. Lol us old ladies do have a time at times. Thank you it corrected the problem.
