thank you tom exactly right, I know Fs make the product of course, it so happened a topic just raged for 2 days and a night on a jaws only list this international list is but one. they were upset of course that they may have to buy jaws 13 to get problems in jaws 12 right but even more so that they had so little clout,many are getting it paid for under what is called access to work,does that make them happier? well it would seem not some and I am one are using our savings to buy jaws, the fact that in the UK there is a sole vendor should help,this means if you buy jaws or an fs product from for example rnib or one of the other outlets,they still have to buy it from the sole vendor in UK sightand sound technology, One of those posting this topic mentioned the sga act,that says any item bought must be "fit for purpose and I have explained that act. but in all the flurry no one seemed to remember that jaws is not covered,since it is sold under license. I expect ms is also to some extent ? many thanks Dorothy.

I think Dorothy is saying that according to several acts concerning the selling of goods and services the vendors products have to live up to the standard advertised and that jaws bug ridden product may be in violation.

Dear list I just want to be sure that Jaws and in fact all screen
readers
are sold under licence I ask since an interesting topic arose on
a list I am
not a member of,a friend just selects any item he thinks is
interesting It
was pertaining to jaws however. One of the posts said he was not
sure about
USA, and mentioned the SGA act,that in Uk means the sale of goods
act of
1979, It states an item sold must be "fit for purpose" in English
law it is
6 years in Scotland it is 5, the listersaid "i do not know about
USA. Well
that act is of course very important but although many Posts were
posted, no
one mentioned that software is in fact sold underLicence I
expect the Usa
law is much the same but of courseI maybe wrong I know computers
i.e.hardware is but since Jaws was the subject can you confirm
what I
imagine is the case regards dorothy
