Re: Download Completion Notification Sound in Firefox And Internet Explorer
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Bill, Ashleigh, and all.
I think I now have checked the appropriate options for getting the Internet Explorer sounds to indicate that a given download is complete. I simply was not arrowing down far enough under the accessibility internet options to get to where I needed to go.
However, I’m now having difficulties testing this on the BARD web site.
The difficulties are with Internet Explorer; Firefox works fine.
I’ll post a quiry to the BAR List, rather than cluttering up this list with a BARD-related quiry.

Hi, Tom. If you go to Internet Options>Advanced, and go to the Accessibility section, it is the fourth entry down: Play System Sounds. It may say this option is off. Just press Space Bar, and tab to Apply.

At least I now know it isn’t just me. (smile)
I guess things have changed with the latest iteration of Internet Explorer 11.
May just give Microsoft Accessibility a call.
At least I can now get my download completion sounds in Firefox, which I use as my main internet browser anyway.
And, I’m planning to download and install Chrome as yet another browser option.

I was looking for this a bit ago for a student. Unfortunately, it seems this option is configured in the Windows registry. I don’t feel comfortable giving instructions for accessing the registry but you can do a Google search for detailed instructions or ask Microsoft Accessibility to check it for you.

First, before I say anything, I want to express my appreciation for this list, and for those who have been helping me with my latest internet browser issues.
I now have successfully gotten the download completion notification sound to work in Firefox 61.
However, I’m still having trouble getting it to work in internet explorer 11 here.
In IE, I have made sure that the “notify me when download is complete” option is checked.
However, in IE 11, when I go to accessibility, I can’t seem to find the needed option to turn download completion sounds on.
If someone can give me some additional instructions as to where to find this option and how to get there in IE 11, I’d appreciate that very much.
