Hi Bill,

"Enable Accessible Notification Events" should be the one,

Hi, again, Mario. Udo could also have been referring to the following JAWS setting, which is found in Miscellaneous in JAWS Settings Center, but only when changing the default JAWS configuration,
Use Accessibility Driver for Screen Capture

could the setting you're referring too is "Ignore Inline Frames" which
can be unchecked?

Hi Mark,

the reason JAWS is speaking some strings twice is as follows:

JAWS uses some framework to gather information like the page title.Since
a few years there's a new framework called UIA. JAWS hooks itself in the
UIA framework and gets the information there. But the old one still
exists and this is reason some things are spoken twice. And because UIA
has a lot of information (at least in Microsoft Edge) JAWS is quite
chatty there.

As far as I know there's a setting to disable the new UIA methods. Since
I haven't an English version of JAWS I can't remember the exact name. I
think it was something like "UIA" or "Automation". But if you disable
the checkbox JAWS doesn't announce the UIA messages like the one if a
download was completed.

To proof if I'm right with my suspicion you can use Firefox, since
Firefox doesn't use UIA. Edge is the browser which uses UIA most
followed by the browser which use Chromium as a base (Google Chrome,
Brave and so on).

Hope this helps
Udo

I'm not sure about that Bill. I made a test HTML page with just a link
to a second page and it's seems just as chatty.
