Re: NVDA and Chrome and alerts

Dan Beaver

Thanks for the help.

I have scanned my system this week so I don't think it would be anything like that.

My wife who is sighted will be home shortly so I will have her watch and see what is going on.

          If you have not scanned your machine recently with a malware detector such as Malwarebytes and/or a spyware detector such as Super AntiSpyware I would suggest you do so.  I had fully expected to hear what you're hearing and have visual elements popping up that correspond to same, but am not.  Just the generic nature of the message, "Alert," makes me wonder if you might have an infection of some kind.
