moderated Re: Microsoft notifications
As I have mentioned before, there is a presumption at work here that these are indeed Microsoft notifications that may not be correct.
There are all sorts of notifications that can be popped up by a web browser. Since I don't use a screen reader on a constant basis I do not know how they all might be announced, but I would have to believe that the screen reader would make their presence known.
There is a limit to the number of terms that screen reader software is going to use for a basic notification, and my suspicion is that there may be a browser push notification involved here, but I have no way to prove it.
And, Rick, everything you have been describing strongly indicates you have corruption in your Windows 10 installation. Do yourself a favor and go through Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO file
