    Narrator randomly speaks anouncements even when disabled.


    So, Narrator randomly speaks anouncements even when disabled. I have triple checked the settings and Narrator is turned off. I am blind and do use a screenreader called Jaws and it is my primary screenreader and is what I hear when navigating my PC. But for example when my printer goes to sleep or wakes up Narrator will read the anouncement even though it is disabled and I am useing Jaws. Narrator will speak other anouncements from time to time also. I have no idea why it is doing this. I did find one other report of this in a Google search but that was it and there wasn't a solution.
    Windows 10 Ver. 20H2.

  2. Narrator voice randomly speaking on Windows 10

    I did try it, and yes it did show up in the taskbar. When I turned it back off, it stayed off; so I really don't have any further suggestions as to why your narrator voice is randomly speaking when you have it disabled other than the possibility that it is somehow not being disabled when you select that option.

    Perhaps someone else will have some further insight to the glitch you are experiencing and a possible remedy.

    Post back if you find any further information about the situation.

    Sorry I could not be of further assistance.

    EDIT:

    I did find however, that if you access the narrator from Control Panel, this screen comes up:

    So essentially, a different set of settings is accessible from what I can see:

    Yeah I thanks, didn't know another narrator setting was in the change sign in settings..

    I had a look at mine one and it does not look any different to your screenshot

    I still do not know what is causing this problem.

    Narrator voice randomly speaking on Windows 10

    Thanks for the clarification.

    I would recommend updating to 1809 because I have way more settings than you do in your 1803 version; unless you just didn't post all of your settings. In either case, I would highly recommend version 1809, as it is the latest Windows build.
