Galaxy S III Talking Calendar Notifications

My calendar notifications speak and play the notification ringtone at the designated time.  How can I turn the speaking feature off?  I have Talkback set to off, but apparently, that is not the feature that is making the phone speak the calendar event title.  I've looked in Settings>Sounds and Calendar settings and can't find it.

 

Also, is there a way to set the snooze interval for the reminders?

The Set alerts & notifications option only offers Alert, Status bar notification (selected), and Off.  I do want a notification ringtone, just not the talking.

Check you Accessebility settings (Settings -> Accessibility) and make sure talkBack is off, and all the talking settings are off

It was driving mode, thank you!  It is really buried in the settings menu.

For reference, Driving Mode is located: Settings> Voice input and output> Text to speech settings> Untick 'Driving Mode'
