Re: NVDA and Chrome and alerts

Dejan Ristic

I've just opened the same page, and nothing of the sort occurred. I expected to hear 'Alert' pronounced, but it did not come up, for I wished to catch up with it via Objpad. Sorry for saying the same.

          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.

Here is a test to find out whether your mission in life is complete.  If you’re alive, it isn’t.
