For what it’s worth I personally use Viper, it’s a paid anti-virus solution, but I’ve found it to be fairly accessible. There are a few things which don’t work perfectly, but on the whole I’ve found it more accessible than some other paid solutions I’ve tried which are out there (like Bitdefender etc). I do have to confess though honestly I don’t really often have to physically open the program and use it. mainly if I want to start or stop a scan, turn off the firewall or for some reason want to exit viper I can do this all from its menu options from the windows system tray, but the few times I have had to open up the program I’ve been able to navigate ok, but again, I haven’t really played around with many of its more advanced features. I don’t notice any slow down when its scanning, but by the same token I have a fairly decent PC, so not sure how it might be on a slower system. The other observation is when it is scanning, if you open the program you can see it is performing a scan, but you can’t see how far through the scan it currently is. I saw a post on another forum where another screen reader user said that they are apparently very open to accessibility feedback too.

Unfortunately I am away from home now and can’t pull up that report. I can tell you that it was the week of Christmas, not much was going on, and I hadn’t downloaded much.
