Google chrome notifications and NVDA

How do I delete notifications from YouTube, facebook, and everyone else in chrome using NVDA so that they don’t accumulate and all try to read to me every time I open the browser?

 

This is a serious question:  What notifications?

I've never had YouTube send me any notification as I never turned any on in YouTube settings, and Facebook (which I almost never touch, except for the account I have for my business) has never sent me one, either, at least not via my web browser.  If you're getting push notifications in the browser that's almost certainly something you've turned on (or someone else has) on the respective sites.

Also, as an aside, I stay logged out on YouTube even if logged in on other Google services.

NVDA is only reading what's being generated as far as notifications go, and you should have the option to turn those off.

Do you want such notifications in the first place?  When a site asks me if I want notifications, I always say no.  but only say yes if you want them.  and be careful, because disreputable sites or hacked advertising may offer you notifications as a form of spam. 
 
I don't know the answer to your question.  But if you don't want to see notifications at all, I believe you can turn notifications off in Chrome.  Someone else may know how that is done.
