Re: stopping chrome speaking remaining download time

Thanks Bill, I’ll see if I can use a similar technique in chrome to stop the download progress being spoken. Its handy to know for IE though, since occasionally I do get it in IE too where it speaks download progress, but its not all the time, next time it does though I’ll try your trick. Thanks again.

Subject: Re: stopping chrome speaking remaining download time
Hi, Paul. I don’t use chrome. Even with Internet Explorer, there have been times where I have gotten download percentages. I don’t know if Chrome works this way, but the way I stopped download percentages in IE is to press ALT plus N for the info bar, then cycle through the options with Tab. Once I do that, I stop hearing the progress.
Thanks for the suggestion, unfortunately I still need to use jaws in other programs whilst its downloading, so turning off the speech isn’t really an option for me. thanks for the suggestion though, I think I’ll just have to revert to downloading really big files through IE, since that doesn’t give me the progress updates. Its not a big deal to have to do it this way, I just thought I’d ask in case there was a way of shutting it off in chrome.
Hi, Paul. I think the only way to stop the announcements is to turn off JAWS speech with INSERT plus SPACE, followed by S.
For this to work, you must go into your default configuration file for JAWS, and turn Less Speech options from Speech On Demand to Mute Speech.
I tried the jaws quick settings for chrome with jaws key and V, I managed to find the progress bar option, I’ve changed it to silent , but I’m still getting the ‘alert downloading, 2 hours left’ message. Thanks for the idea none the less, any other suggestions that might stop the announcements?
When in Chrome, do Insert V to open the JAWS settings for Chrome. Near the bottom of the tree view, you’ll find the progress bar verbosity settings. You can either turn them off or I think you can change how often they let you know of the progress.
wondering if anyone can help, I use chrome as my main web browser , but when I download files every minute or there about jaws updates me on the download progress, this isn’t a problem for small files, but if I want to download something that will take an hour or two constantly getting the download update gets a little annoying. Is there any setting I can alter to stop jaws constantly reading the download progress?
