My believe is that the $120 was the price if you were running the latest version of Window-Eyes, that is 9.5.4 otherwise there was a slightly higher amount for users who were not on the latest version.

Everybody is saying $120 for the SMA. When I migrated from Window-Eyes to JAWS I had to pay $180. I just have the home edition. Why would this be?

The only thing, I don't think you can pay $5 a month, I think you have to pay $120.00 in one whack, which is very hard for some people, who might find it easier to pay $5 a month. However, logistically, $5 a month would cost FVO more than $120 every two years - cost in terms of logistics, processing, cost of processing, recording, etc.

Not sure how that works and if you can even buy single upgrades.
Given that if you have Jaws Home maintaining an SMA costs you all of $5 a month I don't know why you wouldn't simply buy the SMA every two years. It's I think $120 every two years and you get two major versions, so it's $60 per version. Jaws unlike NVDA is not a nonprofit organisation and as a business owner myself I definitely don't begrudge them this relatively minor amount of money. I know some people who don't work and are on some sort of assistance feel this is a heartship, but $5 a month I don't think can be considered a heartship as most of us spend this and more on al sorts of incidental items whether it's a fancy coffee, a beer once a week or cigarettes, in fact somebody who smokes usually wastes a lot more than $5 a month.

What do most major updates cost without an SMA?

Am I understanding it correctly that Jaws gets a update once a month
and a major update once a year?
