Hi, I was just about to send this so here it is:
It turns out that I did not have popups turned off like I thought
I had. My wife said a popup was showing up at the bottom of the
screen but to NVDA it was just showing as a graphic with an x link
below it. The x link dismisses the popup. This behavior is
different than Firefox so that is why I didn't notice it.
Now that popups are truly off I am not hearing the alert message

Please do report back with the final result as far
as cause and fix.
One other thing just struck me, could it be that
you have an update to Chrome itself waiting? They recently
replaced the conventional hamburger/pancake stack menu key with
one that looks like three dots in a vertical column. When
Chrome goes into "I need to be restarted to apply an update"
mode for me there is nothing announced but the menu key itself
will change color, which serves as an alert. Try hitting ALT to
throw focus on to the menu key and see if that doesn't
potentially give you something.
I'm really curious as to what this is, since it
seems to be attached more to your Chrome browser than specific
webpages, at least on the whole.
