Not saying you have to upgrade at all but just to say that an SMA is available not only in the US but also in the UK from Jaws distributors including Sight and Sound. I personally have 2.
What you need to watch out for is that the effective price of your SMA doubles if you do not keep them up to date and you find then you have to pay the full upgrade price, this typically applies as soon as the next Jaws version in any year comes out. So if you have 2019 without any SMA left you can pay for an additional SMA up until Jaws 2020 comes out. But if your SMA has run out and you have not renewed in time you have to pay for the full upgrade price.
The cheapest way to get on the program is to wait until the summer and then hopefully you will find the Upgrade price reduced during conventions in July.

Well, I appreciate what you’re saying, but if you read my message, you’ll see that I *haven’t* been having this problem with Jaws 2018, whereas it seems like most of the people who do have this problem are using Jaws 2019.
This thing you describe about the SMA – I believe it only applies to US customers, also.
Although I do know a way that I can upgrade fairly cheaply, it’s through a plan my old employer had arranged with Optiliech, and I don’t work there anymore. 8grins*
Microsoft claims that any screen-reader that supports Windows 1903 should also support 1909.
But we will see. At least I have NVDA also if I get stuck. I’m less worried about the oS and more concerned about changes in web browsers. Recently Microsoft made some major changes to skype which caused JAWS 2018 scripts to stop functioning correctly. Now that was a pain in the arse.

You may have to put up with this until you upgrade then. As win10 is upgraded every six months not having an MSA will be a bigger issue and at 5 dollars a month (120 over 24mos.) I wouldn't put up with the headaches of lagging behind Microsoft and it's constant major changes to the OS.
