Re: Jaws and the Cloud, was Jfw Digest, Vol 54, Issue 7


Sorry folks! My overriding concern is "privacy", of which there is NONE in
the cloud! And, it's yet more information available "out there" for anyone,
with the skills, to find about me, or anyone else!

OK; so, I'm a technical dinosaur; bbut, I'm not alone.

Hi all,
Having all settings, scripts, and all changes we make to JAWS stored in the
cloud excites me a lot. If FS created a service for us to do this, We would
never lose our settings and our own scripts ever again. I agree. Bring it

Hello everyone,

For some having JAWS store your user settings in the cloud is big.
I have made this suggestion to FS for some time and would like to see it
become a reality. Your authorization code would be stored with your user
settings allowing JAWS to retrieve information such as saved settings
whenever you upgrade to a new version or install and authorize it on
another device. Bring it on FS!

The only possible benefit I could see of allowing jaws to save
settings to the cloud is if they loosen the licensing system so that
it is easier for a single user to use many devices.

For one, I will continue to ignore requests to store "anything" in the

myself, and don't want any additional windows into my life. If FS has
in mind for saving/changing our JAWS settings, I will strongly protest.
course, before protesting, I will wait to see what happens.
