Re: [Bulk] To upgrade or not

Dave, I think Cliff is saying he has an SMA for versions 11 and 12 but has
chosen to stay with JAWS 10.

Cliff, I suggest you install JAWS 11 and, only after that, JAWS 12. I find
JAWS 11, latest build, works pretty well. I've been discouraged by comments
on this list from installing JAWS 12, but doing so won't hurt your ability
to use JAWS 11. Then you can make your own tests to determine which works
better on your system and for your purposes.

Keep in mind that if you are an Excel user, Dave has demonstrated the
problems JAWS 12 has with Excel that JAWS 11 doesn't. If you are an MS
Access user, Ted has explained that only JAWS 10 works with it and not
versions 11 and 12.

I switch between different versions, going back to JAWS 9, based on what I
know works with each one.

Either way, if you have an SMA with version 10 you are allowed version 11 at
no extra charge. Version 12 will cost you. It doesn't matter if you choose
to skip a version, you are still not going to get an extra version.

So if you do have an SMA for version 10 you are already at the point where
you need to purchase a new SMA or buy JAWS at the regular street price.

I'm currently running Jaws 10 on an XP Home. My SMA entitles me to upgrade
to 11 or 12. Is there a compelling reason why I should do either. From the
previous thread, it sounds like the juryy's out on 12. Is 11 a vast
improvement over 10?
