Good morning:

 

When downloading a file with a browser, how can you get the screen reader to read the percentage of the file being downloaded?

 

Thak you.

you didn't mention which browser, but pressing control+j and then arrowing down a few times, you should find a line that includes a number that indicates the progress percentage. hint, a number that keeps increasing, and you most likely will occasionally hear at what percentage it has completed.

If you're using google chrome, you can't. It doesn't give percentages, only time.
