Sound when a web page is loaded I do think that it
would be a good idea to have a sound when a page has been loaded.
Sighted people can see at a glance when a page is loaded so why
should we have to check the long way. If you have internet that
constantly drops out and comes you want to know if your page is
loading and when it's loaded. The webie brouser has this
feature. It plays a ticking sound when a page is loading and you
hear a ding when the page is loaded. You can turn this off in the
options menu. I don't always use it butit's there if I want to
use it. Also you could have nvda read the progress of pages
loading this could be an option in the preferences menu.

blind Internet users to understand, with or without sounds.
And if you move to the address bar and tab around that area,
you will see an item that tells you that a page is loading if
it still is. I have nothing against a sound that tells you if
a page is loading, but these are still things people should
know. I don't trust notifications to always be accurate.
People should be able to check what is going on aside from
something like a sound if there is a way.

Well, I think I figured it out.
This site is sometimes glitchy and loads slowly on my machine.
I tried it again just now. The page loaded up and I am now able to
find the song lyrics just by navigating by headings.
I think that before, I was trying to navigate to the lyrics before
they were actually loaded on to the page.
When my wife was looking, I guess maybe I didn't try headings at
