I almost never use Internet

would start a download, the download window opens. If you are
in the window and if NVDA is set to read progress bars, you
will here the percent spoken. In IE11, I don't know what
happens, but I'm confident that if you are in the right place,
you will hear the percentage as well. I consider this to be
of very little importance because, for one thing, I use my
computer during downloads most of the time and I'm not in the
window. It's really no trouble to check the download window
of whatever browser I'm using off and on to see when a
download completes. And also, Internet Explorer can be made
to play a sound when a download completes.

I'm afraid I have to disagree with you here. If you want to hear
the percentage when something is downloading, just press insert U.
The choices you'll get are beep, speak percentages or no speech.
You don't really need something special like an add-on or narrator
to announce percentages when downloading a file.

Subject: [nvda] my 2 sugestions and the microsoft accessability
lastweek I called the accessability line and gave them my
sugestions for narator and since then I have in email contact with
Sean about this. He would pass on my sugestions and he also said
that would make narator stand out. I told him that if narator
could read the percentages when downloading in internet explorer
and have narator announce every update as it is being downloaded.
I told him that nvda does not do theese things and I don't that it
ever will. Theese are both microsoft issues with windows so this
should be able to be done. This would make naratordo what other
screen readers can't do.
