I have been working with a file archiving utility called WinArchiver.¬† You can download a 30 day trial from www.winarchiver.com
I have tested WinArchiver with Window-eyes and NVDA, so it is accessible with screen readers.¬† When loading the evaluation copy I had to scroll up and down with the arrow keys to select continue unregistered to start my evaluation.¬† This screen comes up every time during the evaluation.¬† You also have the option to order online¬† or enter your registration code.
WinArchiver¬† supports all of the popular file types, zip rar etc.¬† One of the things that set it apart for me is the ability to mount archives as CD drives.¬† There are times when I want to unzip a file such as an NLS book or a Graphic Audio book.¬† I will unzip the file then after I copy it to my desired location¬† I will forget to remove the unzipped folder just cluttering up my hard drive with lots of redundant data.
WinArchiver solves this problem for me by giving me the option to mount the archives as virtual CD drives.¬† You can tell WinArchiver to¬† use 1 virtual drive all the way up to 23.¬† This gives you the option to have multiple archives mounted at one time.¬† It can also auto mount the archives automatically for you the next time you reboot.¬† When the archives are mounted as virtual drives, they are read only, this means you cannot modify the archives when mounted.¬† You can create disc images as well and burn them to CD DVD or Blu-ray.
WinArchiver costs about $30USD and I think it is well worth the price for me to have the ability to mount archives as virtual drives.
