Text (auto-correct) voice when typing?

For the past coulple days I've noticed that when I'm typing a text (SMS) message, and maybe any other typing on my 3G S that I hear the "voice" auto-correct word as I type. I might hesitate or not, but most times the voice "says" the auto-correct word.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Sounds like you have VoiceOver turned on. Check your accessibility settings. There should be a checkbox for 'Speak AutoText'.

In accessibility there's an option to "speak auto-text" ... turn it off.

(I tried to multi-quote) Thank you both! That corrected it.

I thought that was an odd thing, though not too much. Others may want to check it out. I turned mine off.

This happened to me earlier. I had to reboot my 3G S in order for the voice over to turn off even thought the toggle switch was at Off.

Have you tried double-tapping Settings? Sounds like you enabled VoiceOver... and on that screen it lets you know that you need to Double-Tap to select an item. There's even an IMPORTANT popup that appears with a warning when you enable VoiceOver.
