Re: brousers that speak the progress bars when downloading

Dejan Ristic

Hi friend,

I use Mozilla Firefox in order to hear progress changes while downloading.

My NVDA is set to Beep for progress bar updates. When I want to hear the progress updates while downloading, I must go to the Downloads window in Mozilla while my download process is at work. When I do that, I can hear the progress by means of the beep signal.

The progress announcement choice can be satisfied by using the NVDA key and the letter U to decide which of the announcements to choose.

I hope this helps.

I’d like to learn to use NVDA more efficiently.

Is there a way to have NVDA speak the number of unread messages in a given folder?  Maybe an addon?


I’ve not found anything yet.
