Love how Dr. Jaws used to examine your system!  That was the best!

I too tried out JAWS for DOS 2.31, but, in my job at the time, ASAP was a better fit.

 

Then, in 1999, or thereabouts, I had to switch to a Windows environment, so I began using JFW 3.2, with the Eloquence that sounded like he had a cold.

 

Yes, I am older, I actually started out with a TI 99/4A, though after it was already discontinued by TI.

 

That’s another story, though and not for this list.
