Before I lost my vision, one of those must have programs I always had around was CCleaner. But after I started having to use a screen reader to continue my love affair with computers, I was disappointed to find that the check box in a buttons CCleaner uses in it setting screens weren't accessible, or more accurately, their status wasn't accessible. So I reluctantly decided to do without it.
After almost five years, I finally decided that I just had to have CCleaner or something similar, so these past several days, I've been searching high and low for an alternate. I've looked at quite a few programs, some free, some not, and the only one that came close hasn't been updated for about twelve years, prior to Vista and the UAC. I passed on that one thinking that a program that old would likely do more harm than good.
Then while searching around I found an article that said that if you use JAWS, which I do, you can expose those check boxes in buttons by using the Change Window Class facility in JAWS to treat all the buttons in CCleaner as check boxes. So I tried it, after first learning how to use the feature, and it works! Yay! CCleaner is back! Though it has a lot of check boxes and no buttons! (wink)
I just spent the last couple of hours going through the almost 600 cookies on my system choosing the ones I want to keep, when I was done the list of cookies to keep had only about 40 cookies in it! So now I could turn on having it delete cookies along with the other things I have it do when Windows starts.
So, if there any other JAWS users using CCleaner out there, any tips you might have to make working with it a bit easier and simpler, I'd love to hear them.
