Re: The word "alert" in Google Chrome

We don't know.  Alert may just tell a sighted person that there is something of interest on screen, maybe with some sort of graphical indication of where it is.  Or it may have content that isn't being read.  We may get more information, but there is no way to assume what may or may not be present.

But wouldn't that have some content, and wouldn't the screen reader
announce that content along with the word "alert?"
Best,
