Re: NVDA and Internet Security Programmes

Hi. I am one of those users who uses Microsoft Defender along with the commercial version of MalwareBytes. I have MalwareBytes set up to allow Defender's real time protection  to continue to run in the background as I would not want to trust MalwareBytes as my sole antimalware program. Its accessibility, while not perfect, is fairly good and will allow you to access nearly all of its functions.

I'm not saying you won't find something, but its worth noting that Microsoft Security Essentials, that is what it used to be called, in Windows 10 and maybe Windows 8, Windows defender, is well regarded now.  It wasn't for a while but it now is.  I'm not recommending it over other possible choices, I don't know what else may be available.  But many blind people use it, in part because of the difficulty of finding a properly accessible program. Many blind people use  it in combination with Malware Bytes but I don't know if there are accessibility problems with that program now.

Subject: [TechTalk] NVDA and Internet Security Programmes

Hello all, I’m looking into replacing ESET on my computer, as it doesn’t work that well with NVDA.  I’m thinking of either Bitdefender Total Security , Norton 360 Deluxe, and Kaspersky Total Security, as they have all received high reviews.  Can anyone tell me which would be the most accessible with NVDA? Thank you.
