I am interested in learning what you did. How do we contact you
On 11/3/2018 4:47 PM, Kevin Meyers
I would like to talk to you about how
you and your wife generate additional income. I would have
sent this email directly to you and couldn’t find it it in
the string of emails.
How about sending me a email to kevinmeyers@....
Good morning everyone,
In compliance with
one of our parent company's rules of conduct and a wish not
to clutter up the list with unwanted banquet if you want
additional information please contact me privately. Several
folks here have already done that. We'll be meeting with one
of them this afternoon. All the best.
Gimmy some of that special sauce.

Could you be just a
little bit more specific, what you say is pretty vague
like "Mary and I have many ideas for
generating additional income streams" and "Thanks to
someone sharing a business idea with us years ago".
What business idea was shared
with you? Can you give just some rough examples of some
of these potential income streams? Just curious.
I once read some posts on a
different list where somebody was setting up Go Fund Me
campagnes asking for money to buy stuff, hopefully your
"business idea" is di
ferent because to me that is
little different from begging. Online fund raising just
as traditional fund raising for a specific purpose where
maybe a family's home burned down or the primary bread
winner of the family was seriously hurt or killed in an
accident is fine and I have often contributed to such
fund raisers. But nowadays when you look at Go Fund Me
or other such sites where people beg for money because
they want to go on vacation or because they can't afford
something they want then I certainly wouldn't give them
a single Penny. Once a very very long time ago when I
was very young I fell for one of these get rich schemes
with real estate. I happened to hear this infomercial
about this guy who was just itching to share with
everybody how you can get rich in less than a year buy
buying real estate and he showed off all these happy
people who bought his tutorial for $199 which was only
$99 if you acted now and on and on. Of course it came
with a full money back guaranty and naiive as I was I
ordered it. It ended up being like a dozen CD's where he
went on and on saying nothing and repeating himself and
it was a complete waste of time and money. I called to
get my money back but of course because of some
condition I forgot I didn't qualify, basically guys like
that are like the old snakeoil sales people who sell a
cure for something and the only thing it cures is their
Good morning everyone,
A lot of blind
people also choose not to create income streams to
generate the money to self-fund whatever blindness
products and services they need. Mary and I have many
ideas for generating additional income streams. We have
heard nothing but excuses from blind people we tried to
reach out to to help them improve their financial
situation. Thanks to someone sharing a business idea
with us years ago this past January we were able to buy
the latest upgrade of Jaws for Windows, the Dusbury
Braille Translator, and my wife Mary bought herself a
Braille-Edge 40 without seeking help from rehab thank
Let me shut down
some other rubbish that has come upon other lists on
which we shared these accomplishments. Recall above that
we said we're willing to help others accomplish what we
have done to be better positioned to meet the costs of
blindness products and services only to be told we were
braggers, and were called many other names I won't
repeat. Braggers don't reach out to help others improve
their financial situation. I hate to say it but those
with such mindsets and who do nothing but complain about
the high cost of blindness products and services without
being willing to do something about it have created
their own problems. While it's true society doesn't
always have the best attitude towards the blind the
blind themselves are also responsible for their lack of
financial resources if opportunities are placed in their
laps and they fail to get on board.
I also want to
commend VFO for it's new pricing and authorization
scheme. They have done something to make it easier for
blind people to buy their products. It's now up to blind
individuals to seek out opportunities to develop the
needed income streams so they can buy whatever VFO
product they need without having to turn to rehab for
help. Again Mary and I stand ready to assist anyone
wishing to follow our lead so they can do what we've
accomplished. All the best.
It seems to me that if and when the SMA program is
terminated, the least they can do is discount the licenses
with additional years. Has Freedom Scientific/VFO/Vispero
forgotten that most blind people don't have a lot of money
since so many of us are not employed or receive our JAWS
Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.

seems to me that this new system is going to be more
expensive by a lot.� With a sma, you are
only paying sixty dollars a year.� But if
the prices quoted are correct, you'll be paying ninety
dollars a year and it goes up from there.�
What is the purpose of this?�
On 11/1/2018 9:21 PM, Tom Behler
It seems to me that this new
system will replace the older SMA system.
Is this correct?
I do have one concern, though.
$90 a year doesn�t
seem to be that great of a deal, since back in 2016,
I got two years of Jaws for $120, as long as I
purchased the license by December 31.

Stay current with the latest version of JAWS, the
world's most popular screen reader, with an

Details On New Annual Jaws Home Subscription
I have been reading bits and
pieces of info, but can�t seem to find
a nice concise summary of the new Jaws annual home
license that apparently is now available with the
release of Jaws 2019.
Jaws 2019 is the last Jaws
upgrade on my SMA, so I will need to do something to
renew it at some point.
Up until now, I�ve
renewed my Jaws Home SMA for a two-year period for
If there now is a more economical
way to do this, I�d certainly love to
learn about it.
