Default Voice Announcement When Receiving Text Message

Just got my SGS2. Not sure what I did but when there is an incoming text message, a voice announcement starts saying something like "You have just received a text message from XXXXXX". Does anyone know how I can switch this off. Many thanks.

That sounds like it could be a (preinstalled) app, Vlingo.

you've turned on driving mode, reads out texts and if someone rings you it does the same.
easiest way to turn it off is to add the voice widget to the desktop then toggle driving mode.

Try going into Settings, Language and Input, Text-to-Speech output (scroll down a bit) then untick Driving Mode. It should turn off all voice output of notifications.
