I haven't dealt with Frontier in a long time. Way before the CNIB association, they were pretty dependable, if, I thought, somewhat overpriced at times. Good equipmenta nd support, for usre.

Now though? I don't know. Them not answering correspondence is not a good sign.

I deal with Optilech more recently and they were slow, but they got the job done. They sent me my JAWS license in an un-ocred image PDF file, which I thought was pretty funny.

Hi all,

 

Another fellow Canadian here. I saw the letter Richard posted. I did deal with Frontier computing in Toronto for many years. I wrote them in the summer though and there was no response. I understand they are somehow under CNIB. Does anyone have any recent experience with them or other vendors?

I, too, would like to update my SMA before year end, but do not know of which vendors to consider and what a true price point is.

Respectfully,

How did that hand in your pocket manifest itself? Wouldn't any Jaws reseller in Canada charge the same for a Jaws SMA or upgrade?

That's it, Optelec.  They were the company that I felt had their hand in my pocket.  Which got me looking for another dealer.

 Looks like this is basically what used to be called Aroga.

 What's the name of the company? I want to look them up first; as they weren't listed under Canadian dealers on the FS website.

 Email this person and he will answer all of your questions.  There is an agency  in the East but, I felt they were trying to make as much money off the person  as they could.  Where as Ryan is trying to help the customer rather then his  wallet.  ryan@...

Subject: upgrading Jaws

   Hi all,

For anyone who lives in Canada, I'm hoping you can help me. My current licence is good until version 2018, can I just update my licence, or will I have to  buy a whole new licence and copy of Jaws? Can I buy from Freedom Scientific,  or do I have to buy from a Canadian dealer? I really hope someone can help  me, as I've never done this before. Thanks Madison
