I thought that 1TB was 1000 GB, and 1 GB is 1000 MB. Have I forgotten something?

I never said the regular installer was that large, but the Offline installer is.

Really? I'm certainly not the list know-it-all but that math seems a little fuzzy to me...

I am talking about the offline installer. As the name implies, it contains everything you could possibly need for an installation, all the OCR components, help files and so on and it is 832MB which is very close to 1 Terrabyte.
If you don't believe me go to the Freedom Scientific download page for Jaws and select the "Offline installer for secure environments".

Probably more when you include a decent voice or two and the ocr engine.

I for one am glad Vispero has finally left the 90's and early 2000's
behind and does no longer send out what to many are useless pieces of
plastic especially since in my case I haven't had a PC with a DVD
drive for many years.
The Jaws installer has changed some time ago and it is now a fairly
small setup program which means it does not contain all the files
needed for installation, instead it will download what is required
from the web.
This approach is used by more and more software companies, it's been
this way with Adobe Acrobat Reader for a long time, Chrome and
Microsoft Edge are both installed this way, if you subscribe to
Microsoft Office 365 the installer for the Office suite is also like
this and so are many others.
The one difference between installers like most of the ones I
mentioned above and the Jaws installer is that you can actually keep
the Chrome installer or the Edge installer and if you run it a year
from now on a new system it will still work and also download whatever
is the latest version.
For Jaws you still need to download a different setup program for the
version of Jaws you want to install, but since it is only a bit over
40Mb, it only takes a few seconds on most fast internet connections
nowadays and another nice thing is that you don't have to worry about
32 Bit and 64 Bit, the installer does both, looks at your system and
knows which to install.
The older installer was about 180 Mb, but it still downloaded the OCR
component during the installation.
If for some reason you need a full installer or maybe you have a very
slow internet connection where it's better to have everything
downloaded to your computer first you can still download the entire
DVD so to speak, it's I think something like a 500 or 600 Gb download
and it is entirely meant to be run offline if needed.

Regards,
Sieghard

The reason is because they make major updates through the year now and
would to keep sending out c d's for the updates.
They suggest downloading the update and then installing. Then saving
the update on a thumb drive and do for each update through the year.

This is true. I do remember hearing on a podcast and later reading
somewhere they would no longer be sending out CD/DVD discs with JAWS.

Why don't you just download it, the fact is that even if they continue
this in my opinion useless and wasteful tradition of mailing out
DVD's, the version which will be current by the time you receive the
DVD will already be newer than the original Jaws 2020.1910.54 release
which you would get on the DVD.

Hi list:

Will Vispero be mailing out this latest Jaws program release on cd,
and if yes, when should I expect to receive it?

Sincerely,
