FTP Voyager 10 (an FTP Tool)
If you are a serious computer user and/or
a business owner that needs to get things out to your customers over the
internet then you might need a FTP tool at some point.
There many of them out there on the
market and several are supposed to work with JFW, but I have found that
the only one that really works well is FTP Voyager (Version 10).
Unfortunately, that is no longer the
newest version, so you should download it from the following link:
After you buy this program, you should go
and buy the great scripts for this program. These scripts make this
program 100% accessible. With out them the program is 75% accessible, but
with out the Snowman scripts you donít get any info from the status bar
and so donít know how much of your file has been uploaded to the FTP site.

works with JAWs. Click
