Debbie, To stop JAWS from speaking progress bars, hit Insert+V and keep hitting the Down Arrow until you hear General Options. Hit the Down Arrow again 3 times til you hear Progress bar spoken and hit the Space bar. You will hear "Progress bar silent" then hit Enter. Jaws will no longer speak any progress bars.

Hello Debby:

I tried cycling through the options by pressing JAWS KEY+S but, the speaking
of the elapsed time are still spoken. By default, like you, the setting is

The layered keystroke, JAWS KEY+S, followed by the letter S, in JAWS 14, is
a toggle to mute and unmute JAWS.

Thank you for your suggestions.

Hi Dave,

I have two ideas, but someone else may know others. First you can press the
JAWSKey plus the letter S and cycle through what JAWS will say. The choices
are all, none and highlighted. Mine has always defaulted to highlighted.
That will stop it saying the numbers as they advance.

Or you could use the layered keystroke JAWSKey then space and then S. This
has the choices of speech on demand and full speech. Remember with both of
these once you are done with the streaming, you will have to reset them.

Hope this helps!

Hello everyone:

On my HP laptop, I am using Windows 7 and Jaws 14. When I am listening to
streamed audio from any of the radio stations on the BBc web site, JAWS
keeps announcing the elapsed time of any streamd audio I am listening too.
Does anyone have a suggestion as to how I can stop JAWS from doing this.

Thanks in anticipation.
