My 8900 is Reading My Messages OUTLOUD

Ok, I have no idea how I did this, but suddenly, every email or text i get is read outloud to me.

I've had my 8900 since April and this has never happened...since I didn't change anything, I don't know how to change it back!


This would be ok if I was out driving, but when I am work and all of the sudden my purse starts dropping F-bombs and lols....


please help!

Sounds to me like you have VLINGO installed.  It's a feature of Vlingo, which you should be able to turn off.

Either that or Drivesafe.ly


Really any textual dictation program could do it.
