How do I stop Verizon Messages from reading my texts out loud?

How do I stop Verizon Messages from reading my texts out loud? It's really annoying. And for sensitive messages, I certainly don't want them being read out loud.

BluesPwr1009,


I certainly wouldn't want my messages read aloud either. Some messages are just for you. When did you start noticing these being read out loud? What type of device do you have?

I'm also having th same problem after the app update a couple days ago. It started only after I downloaded the newest version. I have the Note 5. I've gone everywhere in my phone as far as notifications settings as well as text to speech, etc, and I cannot find anything to fix this. It's beyond annoying. I either have to put my notifications on silent and constantly check my phone or risk other people hearing my personal conversations
