What's wrong with Dropbox if you use the Windows application? It is
almost fully accessible and I routinely use it. The link you send to
people if you want to share a file doesn't require them to do anything but
follow it and, if you modify it by changing the 0 at the end to a 1 if the
user follows it, the file downloads with nothing else needing to be done
in terms of working with the site.

There are numerous options and claiming that a particular one is the best
is likely to result in howls of protest from fans of alternatives.
With that caveat, I am a big fan of Sendspace (www.sendspace.com). The
website, while not the last word in accessibility, is far and away easier
to navigate with a screen reader than Dropbox. If you install their app,
accessibility is brilliant in Windows and not too bad on Mac.
You can have either a free account or several options for a paid account.
A paid account gives you faster download speed, no ads and no expiry on
retention of files.
For sending people demos, you can either paste the link into an email,
which I normally do, or send a formal email, both options available via
the Application Key in the app. It is a bit messier from the website,
more so for me because I rarely use that option.
One important consideration is that Sendspace does not automatically sync
material between your computer and itself. That is, you have to manually
upload a file to Sendspace and delete it when you no longer want it there.
Fans of Dropbox and others may not like that approach.
