I just downloaded OpenBook demo and installed without an issue. I have JAWS 2019,2020, and 2021 installed.

  Just a quick note of caution.  If you have JAWS 2020 or 2021 installed Openbook 9.0 will not install properly.  This from my own experience and after talking with Freedom this was the steps I needed to take.


Uninstall JAWS 2020 or 2021

Update or install Openbook 9.0

Re install JAWS 2020 or 2021.

The reason is that JAWS and Openbook use  the same OCR components.  JAWS has newer ones than Openbook and Openbook will hang at install unless you follow procedure above. This is from own personal experience and after checking with Freedom Scientific after I encountered the issue. 

Unless someone gives different experience or has updated information that was the latest I have from Freedom and my own situation.

Again, just wanted to put the details out for a caution.
