All this is why I haven't budged from Jaws 10 on my home computer. I have had Jaws 11 and 12 at work, and they don't seem as stable, have little glitches, get hung up with IE8, etc. Now I understand the agency is going to upgrade to Jaws 13? I'm not optimistic, although I appreciate the intent.

cy, I agree with you with the past miserable performance I don't plan on renewing my jaws or getting the maintenance agreement. it is pretty sad to put out a new addition and expecting the public to expect a flawed product. Karen

Dave,
First three months? Man, are you optimistic. (LOLLOLLOL)
Did they ever get 12 reasonably clean?
I am still on 11 and wonder how 13 is for real.
I am trying to decide if I really want to renew my SMA or is it just going
to be waste of money - again?

RJ,

Everyone is a beta tester for at least the first 3 months of a new release.

Okay, I'm cynical. Actually the new version does pre-release about a month
in advance and everyone is welcome to download and report bugs. However
given the short time I really don't think those bug reports ever make it to
the first release. I suspect that these bugs get fixed in the succeeding
monthly updates. Okay, cynical again, but not quite so much, eh?

Other than that if you want to be a Beta tester for real, you need to
contact FS directly and let them know you're interested. Then be prepared to

devote a lot of time to wringing out as many quirks as possible, with as
many applications as possible, in as many operating environments as possible

during the testing cycles, and report every single thing you find that
either works or does not work.

If I ever retire and have nothing to do, I'll volunteer.
