Ai Squared App Central - ProgressIndicator 2.0.2 by Ai Squared
by Ai Squared
This script is designed to give you immediate feedback on the status of progress bars in the active window. There are two types of progress bars. The main progress bar contains a visual indicator as to the progress giving sighted users a percentage from 0 to 100. Marquee bars are similar but they don’t give a percentage. Instead they simply give a sighted user indication that progress is being made without any specifics as to the total percentage. Both types of progress bars can be monitored independently with this script.
With some applications a progress bar may be used for other purposes or never removed from the screen causing the progress status to be read over and over. If this happens you can press the toggle all progress bars hotkey (by default this is Control-Shift-Windows-P) to toggle all progress bars for the current window off or on. Once you toggle them off then all progress bars for the currently active window will be ignored. You can block as many windows as you wish. To unblock a window simply press the hotkey again while the window is active or use the options dialog to remove the blocked window. There is no limit to the number of blocked windows.
The available options can be setup from the help option in the script manager dialog.

very useful app, and quite flexible in that you can choose to hear tones or speech detailing the progress of some operation.
Well, very nice script, but I have to complain about the sound changes made in 1.5. They're maybe better audible thanks to the non sine flavor, but the tones at higher frequencies are very distorted - sounding very unpleasant... Any halfway solution?
A very nice script. If not readily clear, the hotkey that can be changed in the scripts' help and options is the hotkey to toggle a given widnow from having its progress bars read.
Excellent script. Very informative.

I love it! It doesn't even get flaky when I alt tab away from the window with the progress and when I go back to that window it just picks up the bars and reads them. I was afraid it would read randomly but it really is great. One question, is there a hotkey to quickly toggle on and off reading of bars?
Terrific script to indicate the progress of downloads on screen. One of my favorites.
