    So whenever I get a call from someone it will do my ringtone for like 3 seconds, then it will start saying "call from" and then it will say the name. How do I turn it off. It is annoying and I want my own ringtone to play, not something else that I can barely hear. I have an HTC Windows Phone 8x

    Same answer for every phone, doesn't depend on the model.

    Go to Settings, Ease of Access, and then toggle the option for "Speech for phone accessibility". You will notice in the description that it is "announcing caller ID".


    EDIT: Sorry, but got a laugh out of your name. Just watched Monsters University this weekend and the main characters are Mike [Wazowski] and [James] Sullivan. :D

    Seems that it does matter which phone, that option does not appear on my 520.

    Thanks for the confirmation!
    I didn't expect it to matter because that feature was on my Samsung Focus (WP7) and now my Lumia 920. So...no idea why it wouldn't be included on the economy line too.
