Hi Janina,

The Open SSH client I have is from cygwin but you can just install it 
without installing cygwin. It will work well with Jaws for Windows and ASAP, 
but nothing much else is going to give much satisfaction. Vocal-eyes doesn't 
track well at all out of the box.

My knowledge on this subject is a tad dated. However, I am quite certain
there's still a ssh client with cygwin. So, were you to get that set up,
you should have a full bash experience from the DOS box on that Win
machine. How well the Win screen readers do with old DOS apps is another
story I know nothing about anymore.
