Re: SMA Notice

Not necessarily. As JAWS becomes ever more bloated and buggy with each new release, it no longer makes sense to keep shelling out big money every year to keep your SMA up-to-date unless you have a compelling need for the latest feature enhancements or somebody else like your employer or rehab agency is paying for it.

Actually it was upgrading from 5 on my personal computer and that cost me
$400 for letting my SMAs lapse. I believe the charge for the SMA for 14 and
15 was around $120. For anyone who can afford it, staying current with SMAs
is a wise thing to do.

I should also mention that I have the home edition of XP, and JAWS costs
more for anyone with a pro edition of Windows, so it could have been worse.

Joni, as you say, ouch. But for anyone who doesn't know and might be
intimidated, you were upgrading all the way from JAWS 6 to 13. As you know,
an SMA is less than half that price so long as you keep current.

Again, I'm not commenting on FS's pricing policy, just making sure no one is
put off more than need be.
