Hello, I have received these lengthy explanations while navigating the Microsoft 365 ribbon, but only with Narrator or NVDA, but never with Jaws.
I am not even 100% certain that this lengthy text is even appearing on the screen
I do find the explanations fascinating, but also find it interesting that I have never gotten them with Jaws, only the other two screen readers.

Subject: Verbosity of MS Office Ribbons
As an instructor, I am exposed to many other people’s computers. Recently, I have noticed that when some trainees navigate to a ribbon command on their computers, and pretty sure it is Office 365, they hear a long explanation of what the command does. This may be useful initially, but after a short time, nobody wants to hear that any more. I have played around in settings center and quick settings, altering verbosity, but that does not help. Any idea of how to get rid of these explanations?
