moderated Re: Jaws SMA
Van Lant, Robin
I was curious, so I just looked back and saw that I paid $200 for a 2 upgrade SMA at the end of 2018 for the Professional version. Now my cost is $300. Even if JAWS doesn’t come out with new features that often, I still want to maintain current licenses for compatibility with the newest versions of Windows, Office, Chrome, etc. I’ve been paying for the SMA myself, since it’s easier than dealing with the drawn out procurement process at my company and I want to use JAWS at home, too. Maybe I’ll see if my manager will let me expense part of the cost as a business expense to offset the home versus professional difference.

There is no garantee that the price of the annual home license edition won't go up as well.

No, it's obvious what FS is trying to do. They are deliberately making a two-upgrade SMA more expensive for $210 than a two-year license for $180,because they want to gradually migrate all JAWS customers to the licensing arrangement and eliminate the SMA arrangement altogether. Now that JAWS has reached a plateau and few new features can be expected in the future, many JAWS users may simply decide to let their SMA's lapse. But by gradually switching them to the licensing arrangement, JAWS users will have to renew their licenses annually which would be more profitable for FS in the long run.

Boy, that is a jump in price. That should be for 2 upgrades.After updating to 2021, I checked and JAWS indicates I have 1 more remaining upgrade. Should that be reporting correctly or is there something to do to make sure that field in "About" is correct?Thanks,John DoeringPricing AnalystOffice: 4147783040 Extn:4063Mobile:445 S Curtis Rd West Allis, WI 53214Industries for the Blind & Visually Impaired accepts no liability for the content of this email, or for the consequences of any actions taken on the basis of the information provided, unless that information is subsequently confirmed in writing.

If I remember correctly I purchased my last SMA for $120 two years ago. Now I am told that the cost will be $150 and that price is only good until Jan 1. Don't know what the price will be after that.
