Re: KeePass

Thank you, Quentin. That's one of the reasons I became attracted to the idea of it, that it's free and open sourced. No, it doesn't use the cloud or servers such as LastPass and other competitors, but that's not foolproof anyway as my LastPass account was hacked recently based on a supposedly 100% secure master password, and I spent a good day or two changing all my passwords as a result, and doing my best to convince Netflix that, no, I did not live in Brazil, and that I did speak English, not Spanish, and live in the US. What a mess. I'm just glad it wasn't more costly than that.

As a bonus, Keepass is free and open source, so you can try both and keep whichever one you like.  Note you can import Keepass 1.x files into Keepass 2.x but not the other way around (as Keepass 2 has more features): http://keepass.info/help/v2/version.html

Thank you Quentin. It appears that v1 and v2 are a matter of user choice, and that both are accessible enough. I'll take a look at both and decide. V1 might be enough as my needs are basic.

Hi Travis,

I use KeePass version 1 and find it quite good.  There are a couple of unlabelled buttons.  The main ones I use which aren't labelled are one tab after the first password field is "show password", and the one after the second password field is to generate a password.  Other than that, everything works fine with NVDA.

Just reading through the documentation for you, it does say: "
  • [2.x] Accessibility: KeePass 2.x features an advanced option that explicitly optimizes the user interface for screen readers."

I initially chose V1 because I didn't need any of the extra features in V2: http://keepass.info/compare.html

So it might be that V2 is even more accessible, although in fact, V1 isn't that far off.

Regards

Quentin.

It seems that there was a recent discussion of KeePass on this list, but don't remember for sure as we've been dealing with moves and other personal stuff, so emails didn't always get kept or read. If I'm remembering right, how accessible is it with NVDA. I think I also remember reading somewhere that there are two active releases of the program, a version 1 and a version 2. Is one better than the other for us? Thanks so much for any advice and help.
