Subject: Re: Does AIM Work with JAWS?
What if you're someone like me, who seems to be a fan of 90's technology, and you run your operating system in its default state without updates so as to not break compatibility with old programs?
Hmm, not sure. I think maybe apps like Facebook Messenger or an app like WhatsApp are the things people are using nowadays.
If that's the case, are there any equivalents?
I think the issue is the connection to the service. If you found an old executable of the program, it probably wouldn't have anything it could connect to. Seems to me I heard that service was discontinued, and when I heard this, I wondered how long people had been using it. I stopped using it in about 2001.
So there's no chance of having older versions still out there?
Hi, Annabelle. I think AIM has been discontinued since about 2016.
Hi, it's Annabelle.
I used to have AIM on my computer, but unfortunately it was lost when my laptop's motherboard went out. This was almost 9 years ago when I had an old IBM Thinkpad. Which brings me to my questions.
1. Is AIM still available to download or purchase? If so, where can I find it?
2. Does it work with any versions of JAWS? I have all versions of JAWS from 3.7 all the way up to JAWS 15.
