Why are we stuck with only one brouser that will read progress

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.

That's why I say that for many purposes other than browsing, Firefox
is a better choice. I don't want almost everything displayed as web
pages from settings to history. I don't know how it is for sighted
people, but for blind people, this is somewhat cumbersome. 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 your download.
