The Future of JAWS


Gerald Levy
 

As many of you may have learned from other lists, Freedom Scientific's main rival in the commercial screen reader market has announced that it will offer its screen reader absolutely free and unrestricted to users with licensed versions of Windows Office 2010 and higher. How will this development affect us JAWS users? Will hordes of JAWS users flock to the competition and force JAWS into oblivion? Will FS be forced to make a counter move and offer JAWS for free on a similar basis to remain viabole? In short, what is the future of JAWS in light of this stunning announcement, and do we loyal JAWS users have any cause for concern?
Any thoughts ?

Gerald
