Hi again, Joseph. If you want to hear Edge alerts for downloads, once you have pressed ENTER on a download link, press CONTROL plus J to take you to the downloads section. After you have pressed CONTROL plus J, you will once again hear your download alerts.

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?
