    Glad to help!

    So glad that you were able to get it to be quiet! I got my Droid4 about 2 wks ago, and that was the first thing that drove me nuts. They should have a much easier way to navigate to a solution for shutting the voice announce feature down. It is annoying as hell. Take care.


    QUOTE=YellowJacket;2330222]@ Michael, THANK YOU!!! Your tip fixed my problem! No more talking phone.... unless I'm talking to someone on it. Your help is much appreciated. :hail: :biggrin:

    Just reviving an old thread....

    Well, the fix worked but unfortunately "breaks" Copilot Live. With thext to speech disabled, CPL crashes at the splash screen and shuts down. If I go back into settings>applications and enable text to speech, CPL works. So, I have to either put up with voice alerts for my texts or give up CPL.

    I also found that I can go into settings when my maxx is in the car dock and disable voice notifications but that seems to have no bearing on text notifications. Still have the same problem.

    I guess I'm going to have to try a FDR.

    How to turn off caller id voice!!

    At least on the S3,...

    There is an app called "Talking Caller ID (free)" thats installed automatically when you're phone updates itself. To turn off find the app in your phone and uninstall it...that should turn off the voice

    While the phone is docked - go to the Vehicle Mode settings - VehicleModeSetting.jpg Disable TTS - it's just that simple

    I had this same issue. Suddenly, instead of using all my carefully chosen ringtones, the phone began announcing the name of the caller, in a loud, obnoxious, computer-generated voice that filled me with murderous rage. This happened without my having changed any settings or having any recent updates. I have never used text to speech and all the accessibility settings were all off. Here is what I had to do:
    1)Go to all apps.
    2)Go to 'phone'.
    3)When you get to the phone press the three dot 'settings' button.
    4)Scroll down to 'caller ID readout'.
    5)Set it to 'ring only'.

    Disabling text-to-speech didn't work, but this does, and you can keep your test-to-speech if you want to use it.

    I have no idea how why the phone suddenly reset itself like this, but I hated it and was ready to switch carriers if the glitch couldn't be fixed.

    No, it isn't. My text to speech settings were never on and the phone suddenly did this.

    Having gone through the posts above, there seem to many sources of the problem and the fixes depend on the phone. With an older Samsung this worked for me: I went to Settings->"Language and input"->"Text-to-speech output"->"Driving mode"--this was disabled(!!!), so I enabled it, and disabled all the boxes that were checked; then disabled driving mode again. So far, so good.
