    It is extremely annoying when you're running on the treadmill to some music and then get repeatedly interrupted with a robotic voice saying, "you have a message from John Smith, do what to hear it or ignore?".. I get a decent number of text messages during the day and this is definitely something I'd like to disable but I can't seem to find a way to do so.. Any suggestions?

    I have no such setting; my language is not supported, and choosing another language is the only setting I can tweak under "Speech". I still get a notification every time I receive a text message, telling me that my current language isn't supported.

    Could you post a screenshot of your speech settings? It's definitely there for me. (Dutch language)

    Go to Settings -> Speech. Disable it from there. Or you can set it to read out only on headphones instead of Bluetooth.
