I'm talking about images that you see on some web pages. I don't use webbie that much because I do know how to navigate most web pages.

If you know how to navigate web pages effectively, what you are discussing isn't a problem. I don't know what you are referring to. You see links and various fields in Webbie as you do in other browsers. I don't know how Webbie describes image links but image links often contain useful information even if they aren't labeled properly. I don't know what you are describing as graphical. Aside from image links and at times, this or that image I may see on screen, I do not see graphical clutter.
Further discussion might allow us to know what you are describing but at present, I don't know.
I don't know what the newer version of Webbie is like. The old version used a very different interface than is now standard in screen-readers when used with browsers.
Webbie used to have a useful place before a capable free screen-reader was available. Before NVDA, free screen-readers were very limited and couldn't work with standard browsers. But those days are long gone.

The nice thing about the webbie browser is that it takes the extra clutter from a site that has graphics. I mainly use internet explorer but I have used firefox or the webbie browser on occasion.
You are absolutely correct - and it's not something that's specific to screen reader users either. I haven't looked at Webbie for awhile, I must try it again. I didn't mention Edge originally as the question was specifically related to Windows 7. Our support for Edge has been higher than other screen readers to date, but Edge itself is not yet at a point where we'd recommend it generally.
