At the end of the install the user is asked to install Applian Director which is not part of Video Padlock but another product from Applian Technologies presented an issue as JAWS read three unlabeled buttons and the user is unable to determine what they are or what they do. Was told there is a checkbox that is checked / enabled on the Applian Director install screen but JAWS does not announce such a checkbox. Try to use your route JAWS to PC cursor which is insert+minus on the numeric keypad and use arrow keys to navigate to the text that reads 1 MB and do a JAWS left mouse click which is numeric keypad / to activate the checkbox to appear normally. If this works then make sure to make the selection you desire to install or not to install Applian Director. I do not know anything about Applian Director. Never used it.
