S4 lacks incoming number and message verbalization

JUMP TO SOLUTION

I used to be able to easily set an older LG phone to verbalize the name (if the call came from one of my contacts) or number for all incoming calls and messages.  Is there no way to do this with the Galaxy?

This one works, after a fashion.  I have to be very careful about what aspects of the settings under Accessibility to use.  As I said, "Who's Calling" is not one of my options, but I did find an option to have hands free verbalize calls.  The funny thing is that the volume spoken is very quiet compared to the sound of a ringtone.  Go figure.  Thanks for all help.

I do not believe it has this function available.

As far as you know there are no apps that will allow this, either?

Hey there, after researching this with our specialists I think we have found the setting you are looking for. Could you try these steps and let us know if they work for you?

 

Navigate to Android Settings –> Accessibility and turn on Who's Calling. You can now activate the app to get the caller's name or number announced in all incoming calls. By default, the app notifies you for every incoming call and message

I don't have "Who's Calling" as an option.  I've got Vision, Hearing, Dexterity and interaction, then some others, but no "Who's Calling."

Ah, I apologize 'Who's Calling' is a third-party application that would allow the phone to announce the names. My bad, I'm not sure why I got so confused with that last response.
