Windows 10: How can I get Cortana to speak my notifications that pop up?

    How can I get Cortana to speak my notifications that pop up?

    In an old version of Win 10 (1607 Anniversary) I had things setup to have my notifications spoken to me - I can't recall how I did this, but it may have been an app?

    I have read that since the Cortana app already has all the speech in Win 10 that there's a way to use Cortana instead of the robotic narrator voices.

    I have used Cortana to link my android phone with my Win 10 PC (1803 Spring Update), and I can see the notifications pop up on the right side of my monitor, but I want them read out aloud.

    I play most of the time with headphones on and in VR, so I regularly miss a lot of messages and notifications and know there is a way to fix this, but can't find a good guide to do this anywhere?
    I know this was working in the past.

    Really appreciate any help!
