The fix shown below has been reported not to have any effect on other apps using TTS (such as Google Navigation). 
Here is the full fix that has been reported to work on Galaxy S3, S4, Note 10.1 (confirmed working on version 4.2.1) :
- Go to Settings -> Accessibility -> Talkback « ON »

- Select « Settings » from the bottom of the page

- Uncheck all Talkback options

- Switch Talkback « Off » again
- Go back to Settings -> Application manager -> All

- Disable Google TTS (text to speech)

- Disable Samsung TTS (text to speech)
If you’re experiencing the same issue on another phone, try this :

- Go to Settings -> App Manager -> Select GoogleTTS -> Disable

- Go to Settings -> App Manager -> Select SamsungTTS (on a Samsung phone) -> Disable
