moderated Re: Most accessible antivirus or security suite with JAWS

In my experience Windows Defender is perfectly accessible and does a fine job.

The subject line kind of says it all doesn’t it? I’ve been using the

years. It’s time to renew the Malwarebytes subscription and I figured I
would revisit my options.

From what I’ve learned Eset may or may not be accessible. People on here say
it isn’t. Their website gives instructions on installing a screen reader
compatibility file to make it work with NVDA or JAWS. I lean towards taking
the word of the screen reader users who have actually used it.

Trend Micro and Bit Defender May or may not be accessible. There is a
government agency in Texas, I can’t remember which one, that signed an
agreement for a 3rd party vender to provide them with software. This vender
provides Trend Micro and Bit Defender. This agency says it won’t use
software that isn’t accessible. We all know how much those statements are

I know the good and bad points of MalwareBytes and Windows Defender.

Having said all of that what do you recommend, what do you use, how
accessible is it, and what do and don’t you like about it? Thanks in
