I played with this WebIE (version 4--supposedly latest version)
and while it does work somewhat, I have great wait times when
accessing pages with large graphics or embedded audio.
A few weeks ago, I posted a query to this list and some others
concerning solutions for this issue and got absolutely no

I'd say you're accurate just by saying that IE11 is
now long out of date, and WebbIE is subject to whatever issues
that in itself entails. It appears that Alasdair King continues
to maintain WebbIE as there are two updates in 2016, the last
one noted as this month, on the WebbIE web page under the Version History
section and he gets into details about said updates on the WebbIE Blog Page.
I agree, though, that it really amounts to throwing
good effort after bad to pursue anything that has IE11 as its
underlying web browsing technology these days. While IE11 is
still getting security updates it is under no further
development. Web coding conventions have changed enough since
development stopped for that to already be a functional concern.
Now there's no screen reader maker I know of that's throwing a
lot of focus on IE going forward since it's been supplanted in
the marketplace by Chrome and Firefox and Microsoft is intent on
making Edge its flagship web browser. There's a lot more
interest in keeping on top of these three browsers while IE is
going to become more and more a stepchild and will eventually
likely end up unsupported beyond what already exists (which is
substantial, but still, the writing's on the wall).
