blind user needing a way to read text messages on my flip phone

I am blind, and I use a flip phone, not a smartphone. I have a bluetooth earpiece that can tell me who's calling and some other info, but I have no way of getting information about text messages. My mom tried to get some help at the AT&T store, but whatever they tried to do didn't work. Is there any way I can get verbal access to texting features on my own, without sighted assistance? I'm looking for something similar to a screen reader or some kind of voice that will read the messages out to me. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

iPhone or Pixel have the ability to read text to you easily with text to speech options.  I agree you will not find the feature on flip phones.
