Re: V 18 disappointment

I’m really disappointed to hear that you see no improvements in Jaws 18 with regard to Outlook 2016.


I, too, have no more SMA’s after Jaws 18.


For these and other reasons, the idea of switching to a Mac for my next computer has crossed my mind more than once!

I was hoping for much more from Jaws 18 especially in regards to Outlook 2016. I can’t see any difference.


I think given I have no more SMAs and can’t afford the price of the next release, when my laptop ages some more, I may switch to a Mac as you don’t have to pay for accessibility.

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

I’m not particularly happy with  this upgrade that ate up my last SMA, but 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 less  Starbucks/Jamba  Juice  run a month. Even  the Pro version which I had for  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 7.  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 others have commented.  What a racket indeed : (

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