    When I get a call lately, my phone says, incoming call from so-and-so. Nice and loud. incoming text too. Where do I turn that off?

    Change your ringtone for incoming calls to a ringer type instead of the announcement under phone calls where you can choose a new ringtone. Same with text messages.

    Simple! Pull down notification bar and unclick the driving mode. It will stop.

    What if driving mode is off and it still makes announcements?

    Try going into settings and accessibility and see if talk back is on that may help

    Press phone to show the dialer
    in the upper right corner press the three vertical dots below "favorites"
    select "settings"
    select "caller id readout"
    select "ring only"

    did you pull down the notification bar and make sure driving mode is NOT selected? that's usually the culprit.

    On my Verizon phone there is an app called "Caller Name ID" that can't be uninstalled. But I went in and disabled it, and it finally stopped the name announcing.
    What a nuisance!

    I had the same problem with unwanted caller announcement. when it happened last ihut the button to show all open apps and the culprit seemed to be Motorola Assist (I have a Moto X). maybe it got stuck on driving mode. I manually closed the app and hopefully that will solve it.

    Go to Setting and then select APPS. Make sure you are under ALL APPS. Look for the one called Moto Assist Talk to Me and disable.
    You can still take advantage of the Moto Assist APP for when you are driving only without having to deal with this annoying feature on non-stop. Disabling the Caller ID APP did nothing to resolve this issue.

    Ooops....correction..you cannot use the Moto Assist APP....I just read this issue is a known bug where the phone once it activates the APP when you are driving doesn't revert back...so until a fix is identified, as mentioned before it can be disabled but the functionality is lost

    Disabling Driving Mode in pull-down notification screen solved the problem for me. Thank you!

    Go to settings, accessibility, answering and ending calls then make sure you un-check voice control.

    I found it and I could not find any of the answers here that were applicable. Go to settings, go down to 'apps' and then go down to 'talkback' and do a force stop. It took me forever to figure this out and I got no answers from googling it that worked.

    Also realise that if you have a second app for contact list CallApp or some like that, you might go to it setting and turn it off too ...
