Hi, Joseph. I don't know if you got my email the other day in which I stated that if you press CONTROL plus J, the alerts will begin voicing immediately, as soon as you press CONTROL plus J. You don't even need to find the file being downloaded.

Hi again listers:

Well, I found out what was wrong with the download alerts in Edge.
I'm always worried I hit something and messed things up, but, it was
not so. Here's a message I just got from Vispero support:

Hello Joseph:
Microsoft updated Edge. They changed the location of the download
alert from the lower left of the screen to the upper right. You can
still access the download info by pressing control j for the downloads
folder then tab to your current download in the list. Development is
awear of the issue.



Hope this helps.

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

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

I found that the alerts are still spoken with Chrome.

Anyone else have this problem?
