Re: web sites detecting a screen reader
I haven't found any way to turn off speech in live regions. It is important to be able to control this behavior.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Also, there is no reason figure and out of figure should be announced. It is formatting information that is of no use or interest to the general user. It should be off by default as should bloc quotes and perhaps other information. I have found no way to turn off notification of figures.

JAWS and VoiceOVer have ways to ignore live region updates on noisy pages, so I expect that NVDA does too.
One other possibility... Could one block a specific JS package on a site? Or of course, you could tell your browser to not allow JS and that would prevent this extra mess.
