Default How to turn off voice announce

How do I turn off the voice announcement of new calls and messages? I've seen references to changing the Caller ID settings, but there is no Caller ID item in my settings menu.

Thanks!

Steve

Default Stupid voice announcements

I had turned on the voice announcements at one point and forgot how I did it...so when I got tired of hearing the voice every time I got a text or call I started getting frustrated at not being able to turn it off. When I Googled how to turn it on it jogged my memory.

I had turned it on through Smart Actions. Where you can set your phone to do certain things automatically when you're at a specific location or at a specific time or whatever. I just went there, found the Home rule that I had set that action under, and then deleted that freaking thing. No more announcements! Back to the ringtones and such.

I found the setting in Accessibility, talk back, talk back settings. BUT, the phone STILL announces "Verizon Wireless" prior to every call! I cannot find a way to turn THIS off. Android 4.1.2 on Droid Razr Maxx. I HATE the "announce" feature! Please help me turn this OFF! (before I decide between the HTC M8 and the GS5!)
