sorry for the typo, I meant, "my other cheek to be smacked."

Previously, a lister used the term "bashing", which I am highly
skeptical if what I do is so on behalf of myself. Yet, I can tell you
that I am being highly anoyed by the banality of being forced to have
a politically correct discourse within the blindness community in line
with the general global tendency of course, and every opposing
statement being labled as bashing.
İf the king is naked, we should utter that cold reality right in
front of us, rather than trying to pretend keeping the majesty's
non-existing cloak. Thus, if FS in my view has got nearly an abusive
stance in its software version/SMA policies, I would not personally
turn the my cheek to be macked. Would you?

Lastly, if 5USD are a disposable amount for you a month, grant it to a
cherity organization instead, so that at least you would be doing
something conscientious at your scale for the needy.

Thank you

I have Jaws 17 home edition with no sma’s.

I want to purchase Jaws18. Will this just cost me around $60.00 or do I
have to purchase the sma?

Basically, what is the least amount that it will cost me if all I want is
J18 home edition for just right now.

Thank you,

And if you’re running the home version which I would venture to guess
most of us are, you’re talking something like $5.00 a month if you
it down.

I’m not particularly happy with this upgrade that ate up my last SMA,
Jaws has made a huge difference for me. Especially with the increased
multi-lingual support. $5.00 a month is a Pandora subscription or one
Starbucks/Jamba Juice run a month. Even the Pro version which I had
many years before downgrading still was tolerable.

This is why I would much rather pay every 2 years than to wait several
upgrades later.

The only problem with what you are doing is come the day that you have to
upgrade jaws and or your operating system, and that day will come, it is
going to cost you a fortune

I must add to this discussion that I am "still" on JAWS 13 and Windows
Frankly, I have seen nothing really worthwhile in any of the upgrades of
either JAWS or Windows since these versions. Most of the so-called
"improvements" in JAWS are nothing more than fixes of things that did not
work correctly or the addition of things that should have been there all
along; like the mouse announcement thing now (finally) in v. 18, as
have commented. What a racket indeed : (

I just got the official e-mail announcing Jaws 18. Disappointed!
sound like there is anything improved or new that I will use. Won’t
anytime soon!
