[access-uk] Re: [access-up] Screen reader users, click here to turn off Google Instant.

Just hit enter on the link and it turns it off.

With instant turned on as you type into the search box the search automatically 
populate which tends to confuse the hell out of most screenreaders.

I’m sure some purist will come back and say “o no my screen reader works fine 
with it” but top and bottom of it is that it can be confusing.

Once you turn it off Google will (or should) remember that the next time you go 
there!

Hope all that helps.

 Screen reader users, click here to turn off Google Instant.” when I go into 
google this line is present. I’m not sure what it does and whether   it works

anything at all.
