Re: lynx-dev bytes sec?

I don't experience problems with the byte counter because I don't
have any automatic echo from Vocal-Eyes.  Instead, I set up a
hyperactive window which triggers the reading of the status line only
when the first 4 characters of that line change.  I would suggest
first finding that option in the Lynx.cfg and see if it quiets things
down sufficiently.  If it doesn't, you could, with most screen
readers, define a portion of the status line which is to be silent
rather than read.  You could still read it on demand; it just
wouldn't be read automatically every time it changes.
