Yes, I mean exactly what you described, Jean. And it sounds like there might be one activated with control shift l.

By reader add on, do you mean the feature that removes extraneous material such as blocs of links from articles?  There is nothing directly in Chrome that does that.  I tried an add on that does it awhile ago, but there was an accessibility problem, I don't remember what it was now and I couldn't use it.  others may know of a way to use it or another add on.

So does chrome have a reader at on, rather like what you get with Safari either on a Mac or on the phone? The android version of chrome doesn’t have that, and it’s a huge disadvantage in my opinion. I’m guessing that the desktop version either has it built in or at least has an ad on.

>> Why do some people care so much about browser sounds?  When a page has finished opening, you'll know it because the screen-reader automatically starts to read it.  When a page doesn't load for some reason, a lot of the time there is an error message.  When you download a file, you can easily check the estimated time remaining for the download.  I understand the desire to hear a sound when a download finishes because that will tell you, without you having to check or without perhaps getting busy with something else and forgetting to check in a timely manner.  But how much of the concern with sounds is just habit?  Maybe people would be surprised if they didn't use browser sounds for three days as a trial, how quickly almost all of the sounds fade into insignificance.  Even the download finished sound may decrease significantly in importance.
