NVDA and Chrome downloading

So with IE and Firefox there is a information bar that can be read with Alt n to read the status of a download. Is there such a feature in Google Chrome? Running latest NVDA on a Win 10 64 bit system.
Thanks

Hi,

Yes there is!

In Google Chrome, press CTRL+J to open the favorites window. Tab to where it says cansel, and that is where you can check on how much time there is for the download and that. When it is done, it will say go to folder. If you press enter on that, you will be taken right to the download in the folder it was downloaded to. So, CTRL+J is the key. Now to read the progress and that, with NVDA, just use your text reading commands for the review cursor. With JAWS, turn on the touch cursor in JAWS, and left and right arrow through how fast it is downloading, how much time there is left, and so on.

There isn't an information bar in Firerfox and in Firefox alt n isn't the command you use to see download status.  In both Firefox and Chrome, it's control j.  In Firefox, you can close the window with alt f4 and you will return to where you were.  Or you can leave it opened if you like and alt tab back to the main window.  I don't use Chrome enough to be sure if those things also apply to Chrome,.

Yes,

CTRL+J works the same in Chrome as well!
