    Default Talking text messages?

    Just wondering if there is such a thing as having your incoming text messages spoken to you out loud? If so, how do you make it happen? That would be handy when driving, but I would not want it 100 percent of the time.

    I pretty sure the note has a talk back mode to read aloud incoming messages and caller id's. It should be under Settings > Accessibility > Talk back. Let us know if that's what you were looking for or if you have further questions.

    Thanks but will that make incoming text messages talk to me instead of me having to read them?

    You have a note 3. Of course S Voice will read incoming text messages. You have to enable Hands Free Mode in the app.
