Thank you for your responses. 
With my ZoomText I can get the dialog box big enough to see the information. I 
am able to get the percentage of downloaded file along with the progress of the 
file bang downloaded, speed of the download.

after the book is downloaded:
I was checking the number of items in the zipped file and comparing that to the 
number of items in the file after unzipping.

  When I download a book, if I focus on the download window I can use my WE 
mouse/numpad to check the time and speed of the download.  I don't remember if 
the BART download has the check box to close the download page after the 
download is complete but I think it does.  Also with Window-eyes percentage 
script you can set the interval of percentage announcements.

    I was emailing someone today about this question:


     "How do you know when you have downloaded a complete book?"


    I heard someone say to check how many items are in the unzipped folder then 
compare the number of items after the unzipping is done. 


    My example; 105 megabytes, 22 items in the zipped folder and 21 items 


    So are the items in each folder supposed to be equal or one less?


    I also have been told that 1 hour listening time equals 11 megabytes.  


    That would give me 105 MB or not quite 10 hours of listening. My V R Stream 
says the book is 9 hours, 55 minutes and 44 seconds long. Now 10 hours is close 
enough for me. 


    I didn't want to jump through the book heading by heading. Oh by the way 
the book has 26 headings. Sometimes the length of the book on the BARD site is 
not quite accurate.
