    Galaxy S2 Calendar is Talking - Make it Stop!

    Hi All,

    Not sure what caused this but.... whenever I accept a meeting request on an Outlook account, it goes into the Android Calendar. That's all good. The problem I have is that when the reminder pops up for the meeting, it starts Text-to-speech talking the content of the meeting and I can't stop it. It burbles on and on and on. Turning down the volume has no effect. The only way I can stop it is to power the phone off. The content of these outlook meeting requests is very verbose so it takes forever to shut up.

    I would be extremely grateful if someone could point out how to disable this incredibly annoying misfeature.

    Go to Settings/Voice input and output/text to speech settings and make SURE there is no check mark in the box for Driving Mode. Beyond that, I don't know what to tell you - I'm not a technician I'm afraid. Still, if you can be patient, one of our excellent Rescue Squad guys will swing by in awhile and give you a hand with your problem.
