Here's a question I have: apparently one can enable JAWS to run from a demo
copy (without the demo timer turning it off) by hooking up a PAC Mate (if
you have one). (A FS guy told us this at a trade show this past summer.)
Well, we have a "spare" PAC Mate that we basically never use because my
daughter prefers her BrailleNote Apex.
Does anyone know the deal with this? I mean, isn't demo JAWS the same as
$900 JAWS that just turns off after what, 30 or 40 minutes?
We bought JAWS 9 with the SMA that got us to 11 and we're doing okay for
now. I thought of buying the new SMA, but what does that gain for us? We've
never called for support after the initial setup all the way from from v.9
to 10 to 11 so I'm not seeing that as a justification, and this is on a
desktop machine so it isn't like we need to be mobile-- this is just
plugging in a USB cable, right?
What am I missing? We've never tried this because we've always had a paid
copy of JAWS and so far we haven't gone past v.11. Just trying to look to
