hi,
so have you found what's rong with accessibility
welll if you've fixed the blocking of screen readers with autosandbox that's nice
well the behavior shield happened randomly
when unloading jaws
try restarting and unloading jaws and see if that triggerts the blockages
wouldn't flagging screen reader files safe fix the problem

hi,
well  jaws still won't read the gui and installer after the exceptions to sandbox and shield
but other than that it works fine
btw, the accessibility probnlem isn't just with jaws it is with all screen reader applications

Avast Internet Security v. 7 is blocking the screen reader for the blind called System Access. Not only does it stop it from working, but it also blocks the content at its web site, www.serotek.com. I found this out after Avast support helped unblocking a couple of harmless games and Adobe Reader.

For those who are not blind and use screen readers, the problem with Avast's interface is that it doesn't read at all and has to be dug into with special modes or sighted help. This situation is untenable.
