Sorry. I thought it would be a given that I was using NVDA since
this is the NVDA group. I'm using the latest version of NVDA.

You don't say which screen-reader you are using. If you are using
NVDA, I have a suggestion.

don't know if this is a screen reader issue, a Thunderbird issue
or both, but I could use a little help if anybody has any to
Basically, Thunderbird is far too chatty since the last few
version updates. At the moment I'm running 102.2.1, in case
that makes a difference. The problem occurs when I'm in another
window, for example in Firefox watching a YouTube video. When
new emails come in, the screen reader announces their arrival by
reading at a minimum the sender and subject line, and sometimes
even a bunch of the message. This is irritating to me,
especially if I happen to be watching or listening to something
that requires I turn the volume up.
I recall having a similar issue to this many years ago, but at
some point it sorted itself out. I'm not sure if that was due
to something Thunderbird did intentionally or a happy accident
on someone's part, but if I can avoid having to wait for a
repeat performance of whatever it was I would like that. So
assuming that I'm not the only one experiencing this, is there
any way of quieting things down?
