Then you can leave selfprotection off and use NVDA with the program.  But JAWS is available as  a demo, a point that I addressed.  and I would expect JAWS to work well in general on machines. 
 
If you turn off self-protection, malware designed to attack antivirus programs will have a much easier time attacking Avast and either shutting it off or degrading its performance.

But what if you don't have jaws? or for some reason jaws doesn't
function well on your machine?
