f I could find a brouser that works aswell as webie does
then and only then would I change brousers. You should not have
to jump through the hoops just to find your progress if it does
read it. Webie just reads the progress when your download starts
no need to go and find it. No other brouser can do that.

haven't tried google chrome for downloading yet. As far as
webbie, if internet explorer is going away, that means
webbie will too. That's why it's good to have more than one

in a year or two.
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.

Firefox is a better choice. I don't want almost
everything displayed as web pages from settings to

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.
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.

[nvda] reading progress down loads in google chrome
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
