Hi, Joseph. For a long time, I have been using Download Sound, which is an AddOn for Chrome, and if you check "Allow Extensions from Other Stores, under Settings and More>Extensions, you can add Download Sound to Microsoft Edge. This way, I always know when a download has completed. Also, Download Sound gives you a notification if the download failed or was successful.

Subject: Download alerts with Edge


Hi all:


I have the latest JAWS and my Windows 10 updates are current.


When I run Edge, and I download a file, JAWS now does not repeat download status.


In the past, this has been annoying, at times, because those alerts interrupt any other speech.  But, it am now unaware if/when a download finishes.


I found that the alerts are still spoken with Chrome.


Anyone else have this problem?
