Ha... mystery solved.
Starting with the April 2021 updates of JAWS and Fusion, Grammar detection
in Settings Center is on by default for all applications except Word and
Outlook. This enabled JAWS and Fusion to automatically announce grammatical
errors in web-based editors like Google Docs.
If you're getting this in Outlook or Word, then who knows. Maybe thigs just
went wonky during the installation. As has been mentioned it's easy enough
to go into the corresponding settings to adjust this behavior.

I was about to say, isn’t this a setting in Jaws? I know I've turned these
settings off.

Now that I think about it.
They probably need to check their Word settings.
Grammar as you type and spelling as you type are also word settings under
its options proofing.

Yes, I want Jaws to speak up if I make a typo, or run words together, but I
don't want to hear every punctuation mark while reading.
That is likely a Jaws setting.

I go all the way back to 2018 JAWS and have always had spelling or
grammatical mistakes read out to me. It could be as simple as not putting a
space after a comma, JAWS tells me about it. Mind you it has never been to
the extent that is mentioned below. My point is though, reading out
mistakes is not new.

this is a new feature of JAWS 2021, latest build. Go to settings center,
text processing, proofing. You can turn it off there.

Hello
Today I installed JAWS 2021.2103.174. I am using Microsoft Office
2010 on my Windows 10 desktop PC. Since this, I am getting all sorts of
feedback on my Word files including grammatical and spelling errors
plus word counts and other extra unwanted information.
I went into the settings centre for , text processing and proofing but
was totally confounded by the options although I did alter Word classic
to Word only, without any change. Any help would be appreciated as I
am not a "power" user.

Kind regards
