Does google chrome read progress in downloads if so how do you do that. I am using nvda 2017.1 and I just tried to down load all things radio podcast but it did not say the percentages I tried control j and I also tried save as but nothing.

Hello,
After starting the download you need to hit control plus J and this will take you to the downloads window. In this window you can see the progress of your downloads.

Is it possible for you to switch to Mozilla Firefox to get that information while downloading?

Hello,
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 your download.

Do you mean download with Firefox instead of Chrome?  It sounds as though the progress bar isn't accessible in Chrome.  How much does it matter?  If it's a long download, checking off and on should give you a pretty good idea of whether it is getting near the end.  In addition, to hear progress bars when downloading, you have to leave the computer in the download window which means that you can't use the computer while the download is in progress.  It seems more trouble than it's worth.

That's why I say that for many purposes other than browsing, Firefox is a better choice.  I don't want almost everything displayed as web pages from settings to history.  I don't know how it is for sighted people, but 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. 
 
It 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.

        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.

I 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 browser. Don't stay stuck on webbie because it could be gone in a year or two.

    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.

Hello,
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 your download.

Regards,
Greg Wocher

There is often no best and greatest of whatever that is stated about.  The only way I am aware of to speed up Firefox is to do something like turn off JAVA Scripts or use a script blocker.  Turning off downloading of images may speed up things a little and it's a good idea because images are used at times to spread malware.  Are you aware of the consequences of blocking scripts or turning off scripts in the browser?  Unless you are, you shouldn't play with turning off or blocking scripts until you know more about the subject.

i set many options and it took more than 25 minutes time to do it.

Almost all of those settings have absolutely no impact on speed and some of those things such as history are very useful.  I gave the two things that impact speed, mostly turning off JAVA scripts.  But doing so means that some sites you use won't function as desired.  So don't do so unless you know what the results will be or want to experiment.  If you are paranoid or have some legitimate reason to keep sites you browse to private, you may want to turn off some of these other options but they have absolutely nothing to do with speed. If you turn off cookies, you need to know how to allow exceptions.  Some sites won't work or won't work properly or efficiently.  Not allowing any cookies including not desiggnating exceptions is a fine way to havew unnecessary problems.  I don't allow cookies but I have a number of exceptions for trusted sites.  This kind of extremeism, just disabling things like this is a good way to have unnecessary inconveniences for no benefit.

i completely disabled javascript, when i need it i reenable it when i
realy need it and disable it very fast after doing my job.
i allow cookies but only first party and i set it to delete all
cookies after closing firefox!
i never save history and other informations which firefox keeps,
besides i set firefox not to load image and animations and with
disabling javascript, it helps to increase speed extremely!
specially disabling javascript is very essential for security.
i recommend you and all to read the articles which i sent there links.

Hello,
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 your download.

I never said that disabling JAVA scripts won't speed up a computer.  In fact, it's the only thing you listed that does speed up loading of web sites for users with reasonably fast connections.  Nothing else you have listed does to any extent except if you are on a very slow connection such as a dial-up connection.  then disabling images being downloaded will speed up web sites loading.  The rest of what you do is irrelevant to speed.  You shouldn't advocate or imply doing these things to save speed.  If someone is engaging in secret work of some kind or has some reason not to want people to know what sites they have visited, there is no reason to disable history or other such records.  It makes no sense to have cookies deleted on exit.  Often, first party cookies serve very useful purposes.  It makes far more sense to disable cookies, then allow exceptions and not delete the cookies you allow for exceptions.

i said that all of facts increase speed all together.
for me, disabling javascript and also images are very helpful in the speed.
when i set my firefox not remember anything, the speed and using
firefox with nvda became very easy for me.
you can read links which i sent and try it yourself to feel the great speed!
i did not talk about dial up because i did not test it.
i mean about loading pages my recommendations are helpful for increasing speed.
