Why are we stuck with only one brouser that will read
progress bars/? It looks like nvda still has some work to do to
make more brousers more accessable. I don't like firefox because
it's way to slow. Webie will alwaysbe the bestbrouser for the
blind. Why is it so hard to make brousers that read the progress
bars? If we are going to change brousers then we need to have
more accessable brousers that will do what we them to do.

Also, awhile back, Chrome stopped honoring quick browsing
commands in the settings interface which is a web page
interface. Has this been corrected? What this means is that
you can't, for example, make a change and then use the letter
b to jump to the done button. You have to tab through all the
rest of the settings.
It may be that for a lot of
browsing, Chrome is faster or somewhat faster. I haven't
compared, thogh I've seen a few people say it is. But one
reason I still use firefox as my main browser is to avoid
having so many interfaces be rendered as web pages.

Once you have hit control plus J tab a time or two and you should
land on a heading that says today. This is the downloads you have
done today. The first one under this heading should be your
current download. If you arrow down a bit you will hear a line
that has the path where the download is going. This line will also
have the speed of your download. If you go down one more line you
should hear the percentage. It will be read as a normal number
like 34. I don’t think it says percent but this is the percent of
