    Maybe I was just very used to the setting menus in Windows Phone 8.1, but I find the new settings layout to be much more difficult to find settings. For example. in 8.1 I had my phone setup so that when a new text message came in it would tell me the name of the person it was coming from and ask me to read or ignore. In Windows 10 for phones I cannot find this setting anywhere. Does it exist in Win 10 and where can I find it?

    The function doesn't exist in W10 at the moment because Cortana interaction is being handled differently (mostly because of the bluetooth). It will come back in a future update but there is no eta.

    The "read aloud audio confirmation" seems to be working while using a Bluetooth headset but there doesn't seem to be an option to turn it off... very annoying while listening to music through Bluetooth and it pauses your music. I hope we get an option to configure it sooner than later.

    EDIT: I spoke too soon... I have found the setting deep within Cortanas notebook, see it in these screenshots.

    You have no idea how happy I am about finding this setting. Thank you so much!

    What I wonder is why is it turned on by default?!?! It took me a while to find that option.

    is there an option to read it out loud text messages like on the 8.1 models? Stated who was texting and you could either read or ignore

    Only Cortana does it now. No more built in vocal synth.
    First enable Cortana, then tap hamburger, notebook, settings, messages reading

    So is that a Yes, Cortana can be set to function just exactly as in WP 8.1, announce who the text is from and then ask to read it or ignore?
