    Hello,
    I'm a newbie to windows phone 8 and just recently migrated over from Android. Many things are unfamiliar to me and I'm sorry if I'm posting this on a wrong forum.
    Anyway, I've got my HTC 8X for a bout a week now and there is one thing that has been annoying the **** out of me. The voice notification whenever I received a message. I can't find the settings to turn it off anywhere is its really disturbing sometimes. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Just go to settings>ringtones & sounds. You should be able to turn it off there.

    Here is the options to change it or disable it:

    in "Settings - speech - Read incoming text message aloud" in there you have the options to: "Off - Always On - Bluetooth and headsets - Bluetooth only - wire headset only". Yours is probably set to always on.

    Thanks so much for all the suggestion. I managed to to turn it off! there is another problem I'm facing. I can't get any youtube or twitter app to be working. The error messages states that my time and date or region is set wrongly but it's not. Anything I can do?

    Check the time/date/region settings of your Microsoft account's profile.

    I've changed the time and date region on my email address but there's still an error. Is there any other profile I must set? :/ I'm going desperate here.

    Why don't you try Rowi instead of the native twitter app. It's much better. The lite version is free on the store.

    I saw a response that SMS voice notifications can be turned off, but there is no such "speech" setting in Windows 10. This a big problem. On a business call, and the voice comes on for a text over my Bluetooth. I turned off text notification altogether, doesn't help.

    Look under Cortana settings. You can change it there
