Kraven, has this site even spoken to you?

A voice spoke to me here today instructing me on how to post a question.
To post the question I had go home and repost.
Very strange.
AI has been playing with me lately. On Google, AOL, Facebook and now here.

No, it hasn't. I'm sure that's probably your Cortana, or whatever they call it.
The browser has to communicate with the website so that everything works. I'm thinking Cortana translates that information into instructions.
When I set up this computer it asked if I wanted Cortana enabled, and I checked no.
Even if it was enabled, I don't have sound yet, so I wouldn't hear from her.
All I hear is the whir of the fans in my PC.... Oh.... And the TV in the other room.

You could see if you can change the settings.
If you click on the dots in the upper right of your browser, then on "Settings", and finally on "Advanced Settings", you'll be able to scroll down to Cortana's settings.
I hope that helps. Maybe you can keep her quiet. I don't know for sure because I can't test it, not having any sound right now.

Curious.
I found this from Microsoft: Manage Cortana settings

Cortana is part of the Windows 10 experience in the locales where she is available. This means Cortana can't be entirely turned off. For Cortana to work well, she needs to be integrated into the operating system. If you don’t want this functionality available to you follow these steps to hide Cortana from the taskbar:
Right-click (or press and hold) the search box, hover over Cortana, and then select Hidden from the side menu. This will also remove the search box from your taskbar. We don’t recommend hacking registry settings or similar measures as this can make your operating system unstable or crash.
You can review and control exactly what personal information Cortana can access by clicking into the search box and selecting Settings Gear-shaped Settings icon on the left pane. You can also search "Cortana settings" in the search box on the taskbar, and select Cortana & Search settings from the results.
Note: Cortana is removed from the Windows 10 Education and Windows 10 Pro Education editions. See Windows 10 editions for education customers for more info.

That sounds awfully intrusive to me.

Odd that it hasn't happened again.
Could someone have changed the settings?

Has not happened again. I wish knew what triggered it.

I don't know how Cortana works exactly, but maybe a browser update made it more aggressive and intrusive. It's associated with your browser. Not sites.
You could try to change it's settings to see if that helps.
Or even use another browser.

It never happen before. Why did happen no?
I do have Cortona. Never use it.
