Yes, you can do that. You would need to close the most current version of JAWS and open JAWS 18. When I have needed to do this I have made sure I have selected the version of JAWS I want on the desk top, shut down most current version of JAWS and hit enter to open the older version.

Hello again:

Thanks for this info, but since v18 still exists on my machine, and is same
version as one being used by "controller", isn't there a method whereby I
could open 18, and "tandem" via this method since  both versions would now
be equal?

Thank you,

Yes, that is true. The one who gives the code must have a jazz version that
is equal to or higher than the one who enters the code.
