    Formerly had Samsung Note 4; upgraded to Note 9. On Note 4, had configured phone to voice announce text messages and calls from contacts I had enabled as favorites (husband, daughter, son, DIL, other family members). So I would hear "Text message from Tom at Work" or "text from Heather". I had special ringtones for calls, to identify favorite callers. I used Samsung smart switch to transfer everything from old to new phone. But I can't figure out how to set up the voice announcing.

    I found the voice assistant feature in the Accessibility Option and enabled that but just as quickly disabled it--I don't want every single key I press announced--that is just too much. Any help?

    Just to clarify this, open the phone app, and its settings and then follow above instructions. I went straight to the main settings and didn't find it, took me a min to realize i needed to open the phone app settings lol.

    Don't forget, you can select a key word and enter into the search bar at the top of settings. It's really handy, especially if one changes phones often or is not used to the phone they are using.
    Settings menus differ, even with the same model phone from a different carrier. It's crazy...
