    I've got update to Jelly Bean 4.1.1 on Rogers.
    It has a few new things among which is a voice announcer telling me on which page of my seven home screens I am at the moment. When I sweep left or right, it always says on which screen I am. I would like to turn it off.
    Anyone knows how to do this? Please.
    Thank you,

    BTW, I like have my alarms voiced and briefing on issues I choose.

    It is not true that I didn't thanked anyone yet.

    Well, took me hours of experiments and talk to Rogers wireless help tech who suggested Factory Reset. I ignored that knowing I'll lose all my apps installed.
    So, make it short, In the Settings--> Accessibility-->Services it is needed to turn off all of the apps there, TalkBack and others if you have any.
    Unfortunatelly after doing that I lost sound of 'Screen lock sound'.
    Who knows what's next? I'll do my experimenting until sucess. Hope.

    I have an issue of a voice telling me whom I am getting a text message from. How do I turn this off? I have installed handcent sms, but have used it on other phones before and never had the voice issue.

    Talkback is off on my SIII also.
