slightly, improving how the Links browser speaks?

Well given this dos compile of Links the chain  with JavaScript was 
released on 20 August 2019, I imagine you did not have it previously.
Further, my dos screen reader already provides  such windows.  To be sure 
the window method is not speech while things are progressing, which is my 
goal,  but  it is something smiles.
