I've had no problems. Why not go the freedom scientific and download the full install of 2020 and keep your old version. Then if you have problems you can still use your older version.

Hi All,

 

I am about to upgrade to JAWS 2020, can I expect a lot of trouble?

Yes, I always thought FS/Vispero still offered previous monthly iterations of Jaws, so it was a bit of a shock to find I couldn’t go back.

I am a bit surprised that FS doesn't include previous builds of a particular version of JAWS on their Web site for people who feel the need to revert to a previous build within the same release cycle. While they do have previous versions this only gives you the last version for a particular release.

I just updated Jaws 2020 to the June update on my laptop. When I tried to activate the new Avoid Silence feature it crashes instantly and repeatedly. Now it won’t load for more than a few seconds before crashing. I just removed it and have gone back to the last 2019 version. Is there a way to find and install the version from April? I mean the one that didn’t break email conversion handling in Outlook.

 

Thanks

 

John
