Default phone keeps reading text messages out loud

Hey all-

My phone has recently started reading my texts out loud. I have tried EVERYTHING and can't figure out how to turn this off!

Even though I have my phone on silence, everything is silenced except for when I get a text message. During a meeting my phone was announcing "text message from...".

Please help!

There is settings->voice input & output->text to speech settings
Under there, there are NO settings to deselect text to speech output

It has:
Listen to an example
Always use my settings
Default engine
Install voice data
Speech rate
Language

Under Language & Keyboard, there are no text to speech options.

???

I've tried deleting all my Smart Actions profiles just in case it was some weird setting, and still it's not working.

This. is. DRIVING. ME. CRAZY!

I wonder if my phone is defective...?

Get this - since I upgraded to ICS, my text messages are read out loud to me. But only from certain people. This has real possibilities, like when I am in the car, using hands free. How would I set the phone so I could speak and send a text while driving? How could I set the phone so ALL text messages are read to me?

I'm not sure of the answer to this with the stock phone, but there are apps available.

Vlingo has a Car option that you can enable/disable with the push of a button.

I had this problem also. A woman's voice would ask to read my texts. But it wasn't consistent. It was very unpredictable. I asked the store for help, they suggested switching my texts to Hangout to see if that would help. It didn't. I figured it out by accident. I got an update for Motorola Assist. Didnt realize iI even had it. I opened it, clicked "driving" & unchecked the box that read "read my texts". Bingo! I'm pretty sure this took care of it. I did this just 5 min ago.
