Re: antivirus and firewall solution
Vipre is pretty good and what my wife and I decided to go with, but accessibility throughout the interface could most certainly be improved. I can't say how things might be different if one were to use it with JFW, but with NVDA, I find that I need to use object navigation to access certain parts of the interface. It's also quite the pickle to read areas such as where your scan results are displayed, whether it's that of a scan performed through the context menu verses a normal scheduled quick/full scan, but it can be done. You'll also find that any files that show up as being malicious will be displayed in a list that can be navigated through using the arrows. However, in how some of these lists and their information are displayed, not all information seems to be easily focusable by the screenreader. One example of this is when you wish to see the file path of an application or whatever that triggered a warning and you move to the entry in the list, visually a thing will pop up to the right with the information, but NVDA wont automatically read it. If you move your mouse to roughly where the entry shows up though, you can then slightly move it and it will read what's there under the pointer. I also don't know about the logs area of the firewall section and how well it might read everything there, but I assume it'd be similar to the virus section.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
You'll note that when you start using it, specifically the configurations of the firewall, that there is a default setting that uses the rules that are currently in place and another that basically learns and makes new rules as you use different' applications and services. The application suggests using this second mode to start out with, so basically start creating a ruleset for the applications and whatever that you're currently using and ten when you're satisfied with things, changing it over to the first one to use those rules. I only mention this because, you'll be getting a fair number of popups in the top right corner of your screen when vipre wishes to know whether you want to allow/deny something. At least with NVDA, the screenreader doesn't automatically focus on any specific button in this popup, but it does somewhat focus on the window thing that shows up. To jump focus to the first button in the window, I normally press tab and then I can move around with object navigation to see what is being asked of me. These are also the same types of window/popup things that show up when a malicious file is detected, but obviously the buttons are different. Also be aware that these windows only last for a certain amount of time, so especially with the firewall ones, I try to read the information in them pretty quickly. :)
Anyways, hope that helps.
