    Google Text-to Speech is what was causing it for me.

    Settings/Application Manager/Google Text-to-Speech/Uninstall

    I tried disabling Google Text-to-Speech, but the next time I rebooted the phone the annoying lady was back. By then I had forgotten how I'd done it, and again the painstaking search to find the answer again. This time I just uninstalled it. It's not an app I need anyway.

    The fix didn't last long. Google Text-to Speech cannot be gotten rid of, although now it isn't listed under Application Manager. Reinstalling so I can at least disable it.

    I reinstalled Google Text-to-Speech and clicked Force Stop. Again that stopped it. I rebooted and it's back. Until i find a permanent fix I am going to have to force stop it after every reboot.

    Heyyy, I was having the same problem but I think I found a way of fixing this issue a lot of people are having please note that I did this on Samsung galaxy S2.....go on to Settings then Accessibility then swipe all the way to the bottom you should see a box saying "turn off all sounds" don't worry just follow the steps... tap turn off all sounds then turn off your device wait a minute or two then turn your device back on then wait for your device/phone to boot up properly then go back to Settings and then Accessibility then swipe all the way to the bottom and tap on "turn on all sounds" and your done if it doesn't work first time do try again...it will work eventually I promise.
    Hope it works for you guys too xx

    Kind regards xx

    The Settings-accessibility-talkback-settings-Off ~ worked for me when all others above didn't do it. Thanks. PS... Be patient with this as it takes a while to actually get to working - mine about 5 seconds.

    I uninstalled the TTS updates on my Samsung tab 10.1 to restore it to its factory version and it seems to be working fine. Hope this can help someone else. It's a real annoyance and wish they come up with a fix for it since so many of us have been experiencing the same issue.

    Thanks everyone for the helpful tips. I guess trial and error is our only option until a fix is developed.

    Uninstall updates for Google text to speech will revert back to factory setting for this function...

    go to Settings -->Accessibility, scroll down to the Services Category and click Addons Detector. Read the bottom paragraph. Then turn that function OFF.

    Good luck!

    I followed the advice on disabling Google text to speech on my old S2 and it did the trick. Thank you, it was doing my head in!

    Go to: settings --> then go to: application manager --> then scroll over to: running > all
    Under the 'all' tab find apps 1) Google text-to-speech engine 2) Samsung push service 3) S voice 4) Samsung tts 5) talk back
    Disable all 5 apps
    The verbal notification should stop. It worked for me.

    I have FINALLY found the right solution. I've been dealing with this issue for quite some time now but I managed to solve it. It's actually quite simple and I'm sure it'll work for all of you who have talkback and drive mood off.

    Just go to settings---> device---> display---> and turn off page buddy

    Default Re: S2, voice notification of page, help me get rid of it.

    Just found the solution that worked for me having tried all the others suggested here, which had no effect except one.
    I went to Settings -->Accessibility, scrolled down to the Services Category (as suggested by others) and turned off what I think is an addon app, 360 Battery Saver & Phone..

    It seems to be a gliche/bug in the JellyBean OS and it could be any one of various addon apps that you could have installed ( in my case the 360 Battery Saver) that are causing the problem. To find the add on causing the problem was a case of time consuming trial and error. However once you find the app you added and remove it, it is well worth the effort to get rid of that very irritating and frustrating voice announcing of every page!

    Good Luck!

    N.B. Be warned! I tried Turning it off by going to "Accessibility" then "Hearing" and then "Turn off all sounds". At first this appears to work but then you realise it really does turn off 'ALL' sounds and you can't hear your phone ringing or notification messages etc.

    My solution is simplier. Earlier I have downloaded the CleanMaster app. After some time the app suggested me to turn it on all the time, that way it can handle the condition of my phone, etc etc, and I did this way. That ***** page notification voice has started exactly then. When I have turned off the CleanMaster in the settings>accessibility the problem has solved. Sorry for my bad english, I hope it coluld help.

    There is no need to worry. I had this problem too. But i got rid of it in a minute. All you need to do ia to go to the settings> applications> All and search the following"Talk, Google text to speech, samsung TTS, Talkback" and disable them. Hope it works for you :-)

    Try this:
    Open:-

    Setting>>accessibility>>services

    You can see some applications there. Now, switch off each application one by one and check.

    It works for me but i am not sure whether it works for you or not.

    Yo i just figured out the problem. I went into settings and i saw samsung TTS and i changed the voice just to see what would happen and i found the issue. Since my galaxy s3 is rooted, i used romtoolbox and looked into app manager and scrolled down until i found samsung tts and i froze it. I scroll through the pages and i dont hear any voices. Hope that helps everyone

    If your rooted, you can either use titanium backup or romtoolbox to actually freeze the accessibility function labled samsung tts. I just did it and rebooted and i scroll through the pages and dont hear no voice. Whewww bout time i figured that out and hope it helps

    For me disabling Avast Battery Saver resolved the problem, but now I have a battery draining problem...... It seems I have to choose.
