That sounds like the running tasks pinned to some part of windows being refreshed and getting focus for a moment to me.

Further announcements such as:

When alt tabbing I get a mention like close task switching and its gone when
releasing the key combo..

Also when I was up arrowing in file exploer got a firefox open menu
announcement. But I don't see a list. Do have Firefox running with two
websites .e.g Facebook and Sendspace.

Also whilst writing this email got announcement

Side by side toolbar, narvigation menu..

Using win10pro 1709 Build 16299.192 and NVDA version 2017.4

When I arrow up or down in outlook 2016 messages at random I hear things
like minimise the window or alt something to do something.. As if a stretch
out menu like when you press the alt key and get the menu restore, minimise,
maximise etc.. Also when I got to the top of my messages I hear desktop.

When typing in this email I keep hearing at odd time forms region, and
desktop, and clear tabs or something like that.

I reloaded nvda to no avail. Maximised and restored windows to no avail.

However I noticed that this started today and not sure when I had upgraded
to build 16299.192 which may have a bearing but couldn't be certain.

Any help sa to resolve this would be greatly appreciated.
