Hi Carol,

All the programs suggested thus far in this thread will work quite
nicely. One thing to note as well is that Windows includes a free,
fully functional command line based FTP client. This is a derivative of
the same client found on Unix and Linux systems throughout the world.
Most end users would probably not want to bother with it, but if your
student is majoring in the computer field, and isn't yet familiar with
this client, understanding its use would be a very valuable skill. The
client is completely accessible using any screen reader worth its salt,
and will be present on virtually every computer your student is ever
likely to deal with. A tutorial can be found here:

Subject: [Athen] FTP Program for Blind Users

I have a student who is blind who is majoring in a computer technology
field. The student needs to use an FTP program. Their were some
accessibility problems with the one the professor suggested. I
researched some and found FileZilla which was better with JAWS, but I
was wondering if there are other free FTP programs out there that you
would recommend. Thanks.
