Never mind, found it just after I hit send (Isn't that always the way?).

Found it on the AVMAP site:


Page APRS-15

"APRS Voice Announce <APRS VOICE>
When using an optional VGS-1 unit, you may select ON. Each
time you receive a message addressed to you, the transceiver
announces the call sign of the sender. If the initial character of
the message is %, the transceiver announces the subsequent
characters one by one."

If anyone has direct experience that confirms or denies this I would 
still appreciate hearing it.

73, thanks, and sorry for the wasted band width.
