Windows Phone Mango: Enable Talking caller ID

Here is one feature to look out for in Mango – talking calling ID. Just go to “Settings” >> “Ease of Access” and tap on “Speech for phone accessibility” to enable it. This will enable talking caller ID on your windows phone. After that, your phone will ring for 2-3 seconds and then a lady will continue to say caller’s name again and again.


You need to have the right Mango build to see this “ease of access” option in settings. If it is not there, then you are either not on Mango firmware or your build is old. Also, this option does not works when the phone is silent. Right now, the lady behind the caller ID continues to repeat the name which may irk a few users, but something is better than nothing, right?
