    Buddy goes to type an SMS message and every third word is spoken audibly as he types it. He is not hitting any mic button and we haven't been able to tell what would be causing this. Any ideas? iOS 5 on a 4S.

    Is this caused by one of the "accessibility" settings?

    Oh the voiceover setting. For the hard of seeing I think.

    I would only assume it has something to do with this... Voice over I believe. Is this setting turned on OP?

    Voiceover is the only thing that could be reading any of what is being typed.. but not sure why every third word...

    I'd go with a restore of the iPhone... or nuke it from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

    It's 'Speak Auto Text'. Turn it off under Accessibility.

    It's a feature that apple added so that drunk texters can actually hear the stupid crap they've written before sending it.
