Well, this is a whole other thing. There is a link available to screen readers at the top of the page -- "click here to turn off google instant." I have no idea what they do with it visually -- maybe make it invisible? In any case, it only works for the duration of the session, and doesn't save when you close the window. Also requires cookies. In a conversation with a Google person I had over a year ago, she said they knew about this problem and were trying to fix. So . . . around 2018 then.

You can also turn off javascript, but for the reasons [personal profile] jadelennox talked about, this is really annoying in the google context.
