Good free FTP program for a blind user

Hi all,

I use CoreFTP and find it to be a superb useful piece of free software. My sister, who is blind and thus relies on speech software to use a computer, has asked me to find her a good FTP progra mthat she would be able to use. Now, while I like CoreFTP, I can easily see how it would confuse a blind user - it gets me sometimes!

I've started looking around for free FTP software, and there seem to be loads!
http://www.1000files.com/free/free-ftp.html
http://www.freewarefiles.com/cat_5_5...Downloads.html
http://www.techsupportalert.com/best...ilities.htm#28

I have no idea where to start - Help?!

Thus, can anyone suggest a program that they know and/or use that would be suitable for blind users?

Basically, the test is to see if you can use it fully without touching the mouse at all. Use tab or the arrow keys to move around, use enter or space bar to select stuff. No mouse moves, no mouse clicking.

Any suggestions of which ones I can download and try out would be most appreciated!

Cheers!

Um I'm not sure how blind enabled software should work, but mybe she could learn to use SFTP.
I only mention this since it's all text obviously and available in some form on EVERY platform.

That would be great. They would probably have a very good idea about that sort of stuff. Thanks!

Rage- I shall have a look at that one. Thanks!
