Verbal announcments - how to turn it off??

I'm new to this phone, and going crazy with all the setting/options.  My husband insisted I have it, but he's much more tech savvy than me!

My problem is, every time there is an incoming phone call or message, I get a verbal notification, saying "incoming call from......"

Can someone please tell me how to turn this off?  I can't have this announcement going off all day in my office!  Thanks!

Sounds like you may have turned on the default screen reader for blind users. To turn it off, from the home screen, go to Menu>Settings>Accessibility. From there, you can turn off the screen reader.

When I go to accessibility, I get a message that says "no accessibility applications found"  You do not have any accessibility applications.  You can download a screen reader from the android market.  Click OK to install screen reader.

In that case, I have no idea how you are doing that! You must have inadvertantly downloaded and installed a third party app, and without knowing what was downloaded, you might be stuck with that option until your husband fixes what he might have installed.

Sorry I couldn't be much more help...
