Hi

Is there an addon which can read the URL of a website like in Firefox the Firefox enhancer addon does?

Greetings

You don't need an add-on. That feature is a convenience feature, but all you need do is press f6 and you will move to the address bar with the address in it. You will hear a lot of unnecessary speech if you just let the screen-reader read. Use read current line and the address will be read. Use control c, the standard copy command, to copy it to the clipboard.
Use shift f6 to return to the page.
This procedure is standard for all the popular Windows browsers I've used.

The enhancement for Mozilla products has many abilities that are real conveniences and time savers. This one is a convenience, but a minor one. You will be able to use my method with almost as much efficiency as using that feature.
