Blocking vocal reading of SMS

I have recently updated my phone (Curve 9380) software and all the incoming text messages (SMS) are read vocally and loudly with a voice speaking in italian with british accent and mixing both languages. This is really annoying as this option, automatically set by the updated software (this should not be so but it is unfortunately), acts independently of any choice of audio profile. How could I remove it?

 

Thanks beforehand.

Hello jonlester

 

Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums

 

 

Our BlackBerry will not read our Text Messages unless we Install such 3rd party application , You have to check your application list and Uninstall or delete that particular application , If you Installed any 3rd party application for this purpose or which reads SMS delete that particular application from Options > Device > Application Management > locate and delete that application , it will resolve your issue.

Thank you very much! I have found drivesafe.ly installed and, with the current OS version, just worked improperly.
