Safari repeating an address after a window is closed

macOS & Mac Apps

Hi all. Running the latest version of Mac OS, not in a beta, though I am in the program. Recently, safari will act strange when I close the window. I know the address bar shouldn't be visible unless i hit command L, but I hear an address spoken. So when I hit command W, i hear, "open http://" and then an address i had used. Nothing in my favorites or anything, but I wonder if anyone has seen this. Thanks for any help. P.s. When I say the window is closed, I am saying that the Safari aplication is open, but there are no windows. Hope that might help some of the explanation.
