Interesting why someone would want to completely disable speaking
of those UIA app notifications through NVDA? You can disable them
individually right from within the Windows Action Center located
in the Systray.
First you here a UIA notification spawned by an app:
1. Press [Windows Key] + [a].
2. [Tab] over to the parent notification app grouping list.
3. Arrow [Down] to the child notification for the app you wish to
4. [Tab] over to the "Settings for this notification" button.
5. Press the [Spacebar] on it.
6. From the pop up menu of options, arrow [Down] or [Up] to "Turn
off all notifications for <Name of app>."
Simply Select it, and POOF: no more UIA notifications for that
specific app. Have disabled notifications for Microsoft mail, and
the Microsoft store. They were really the only notifications that
were annoying the heck out of me.
I use Thunderbird as my primary email client.
Using the latest build of Microsoft Windows 10 v2004 by the way.

Windows 10 App Essentials 20.06 is now
available. In addition to Flake8 related internals work, it
brings ability to let NVDA stop announcing UIA notifications
from Microsoft Store and other programs if “report
notifications” is turned off from NVDA’s object presentation
settings. As always, the add-on update is available via
community add-ons website and through Add-on Updater.
IMPORTANT: in accordance with support
policy for Windows 10 App Essentials add-on (supporting a
given Windows 10 feature update for at least a year but not
forever), version 20.06 will be the last release to support
Windows 10 Version 1903 (May 2019 Update/build 18362). Version
1903 was supported by this add-on since March 2019, and it is
time to say goodbye from this add-on. But not all is lost:
Version 1909 (November 2019 Update) and upcoming Version 2004
(May 2020 Update) are supported (in a way, due to special
nature of November 2019 Update, the add-on will keep
supporting May 2019 Update a while longer). Actually, Windows
10 App Essentials supports two future feature updates already
(more on that later). Nevertheless, for support policy, the
next major version of this add-on (20.07) will require Windows
10 Version 1909 (November 2019 Update/build 18363) or later.
Also, for people using development
snapshots: the last development snapshots before the break
will be sent this weekend. The next one after that will show
up in July.
